2008 Fall Symposium: Digital Preservation

Lawrence, Kansas, November 7-8, 2008


This workshop is predicated on the need for institutions to combine organizational and technological perspectives to devise an appropriate response to the challenges that digital preservation (DP) requirements present. It is aimed at managers at institutions who are grappling with fundamental DP issues. The workshop schedule is built around three action plan sessions for policy, technology, and resource frameworks that we developed to assist you in designing and implementing an approach that will work for your institution. Each action plan references exemplars from real programs and potential building blocks for your frameworks.

Symposium attendees are eligible to earn seven Archival Recertification Credits from the Academy of Certified Archivists. Registration rate includes supplemental handouts and access to an online tutorial, to be completed by participants in advance of the event.
