Getting started in digital preservation
By Caroline Peach
Following on from the very successful ‘Decoding the Digital’ conference, the British Library Preservation Advisory Centre and the Digital Preservation Coalition are delighted to advertise the first of four events designed to raise awareness of digital preservation issues, increase involvement with digital preservation activities and sign-post the support and resources available to help you on your way. This event provides an introduction to digital preservation, builds an understanding of the risks to digital materials, includes practical sessions to help you apply digital preservation planning and tools, and features speakers sharing their own experience of putting digital preservation into practice.
Who should come?
The sessions are aimed at librarians, archivists and collection managers in all sectors and in all sizes of institution who want to find out more about digital preservation and the implications for their organisation of having to retain, manage and provide ongoing access to digital material. Throughout the day participants will gain confidence in addressing digital preservation issues and knowledge of achievable steps to put theory into practice and safeguard vulnerable digital content.
Where and when?
Friday 4 February 2011 (1030-1600), British LibraryCentre for Conservation, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB
