Are you responsible for digital preservation at your organization?  Are you interested in learning the standards, resources, policies, and work flows integral to a successful program?  Do you want to join a cohort of similar professionals as you develop your skills and organizational readiness?  Come learn how to implement short-term strategies for long-term problems.

We are happy to announce that the five-day Digital Preservation Management Workshop directed by Nancy Y. McGovern is taking place this June 15 - 20, 2014 at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts hosted by Five Colleges Consortium.  Tuition fee is $1,100.00 and includes 4 lunches and a group dinner.

Workshop Goals
Promote Practical and Responsible Stewardship of Digital Assets. The goals of the workshop are to foster critical thinking in a technological realm and provide the means for exercising practical and responsible stewardship of digital assets in an age of technological uncertainty. The workshop sessions are geared towards making a digital preservation program doable for any organization and all of the sessions include as many relevant examples as we can fit.

Workshop Content
The workshop includes interactive presentations, group discussions, exercises, individual assignments, and a keynote presentation by an international expert in digital preservation. Workshop attendees explore the range of components needed to develop an effective digital preservation program. Workshop materials include action plans for organizations to complete when participants return to their institutions. Action plans result in organization-specific plans that incorporate technical, financial, organizational, and policy aspects encompassing the full life cycle of digital objects. The workshop focuses on strategies for organizations to implement now, while research and development goes forward in creating longer-term solutions that can be incorporated into the program framework.
