Staying on TRAC: Digital Preservation Implications and Solutions for Cultural Heritage Institutions ~ A Two-Day Workshop

July 7-8, 2011, at the University of Denver
Registration is now closed!

The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries, the Penrose Library, and the Library and Information Science Program at the University of Denver are joining with Lyrasis and the National Endowment for the Humanities to bring this great digital preservation planning opportunity to Colorado this July!

About the Workshop

Deepen your digital preservation knowledge with a two-day workshop targeted toward representatives from organizations who have acquired or created digital content and are now ready to address the issue of long term access to digital collections by partnering with other organizations. These partnerships can be existing or newly forming intra- or inter-institutional collaborative efforts for digital preservation.

The workshop sessions will cover key digital preservation planning topics including:

  • assessing your local situation;
  • determining your organizational, functional, and technical needs;
  • matching needs to current digital preservation solutions.

The workshop helps participants develop their own digital preservation planning document, and allows time for group exercises and feedback.

Faculty for the Colorado workshop includes digital preservation experts Robin L. Dale, Director of Digital Services for Lyrasis, and Priscilla Caplan, Assistant Director for Digital Library Services at the Florida Center for Library Automation.  Faculty bios are available here.
