WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

· We recommend that several representatives attend the workshop, because participants will work as a team. A collaborative’s team could include the director or project manager, technology manager, digital librarian, and one or more representatives from partner organizations.
· The digital collaboratives can be state-based, regionally-based, or subject-based collaboratives looking to develop digital preservation plans and options for their digital collections.
