Workshop - Preserving Digital Archives

The UT Libraries will be sponsoring the following Society of American Archivists (SAA) digital archives course on July 20 in Knoxville: “Preserving Digital Archives: Concepts and Competencies.” Would it be possible to forward this information to the UK student listserv? Workshop Description: What do you need to know to preserve born-digital materials successfully once they’ve crossed the archives threshold? With an emphasis on modern records and technology, you’ll learn about the concepts and competencies you need to construct and administer digital archives. You’ll examine accepted digital archives models and implementations and emerging standards of practice, as well as preservation metadata schemas and their use in digital archives.
