Getting started in digital preservation, 2013
National Library of Wales – 6th June
The British Library Preservation Advisory Centre and the Digital Preservation Coalition invite you to join them at one of three events which will equip collection managers, archivists, librarians and conservators with the skills necessary for ‘getting started in digital preservation’.
Our generation has invested as never before in digital resources and we’ve done so because of the opportunity they bring. Digital preservation – the series of managed activities necessary to ensure that digital materials remain accessible beyond the limits of obsolescence – is an issue which all organisations, particularly in the knowledge sector, will need to address sooner or later.
This day long introduction assumes no prior knowledge except a willingness to engage with digital preservation. Through a series of presentations, case studies and exercises, participants will learn how to apply techniques of assessment, risk management and planning to help secure their digital collections.
These workshops will interest:
Collections managers, librarians, curators and archivists in all institutions
IT managers in memory institutions
Records managers in institutions with a need for long-lived data
CIO’s in organisations with commercial intellectual property
Students and researchers in information science and related fields
Researchers with interests in research data management.
Places are strictly limited and should be booked in advance. Registration will close one week before the event and early booking is recommended as we expect these events will be popular. Registration is free for DPC members. Registration for non-members costs £20 per person.
