266. Digital Preservation Workshop, ISL May 31

Digital Preservation Workshop
May 31, 2012

            The eight-hour workshop is based on curriculum developed by the Library of Congress' Digital Preservation Outreach and Education Program (DPOE). The Indiana State Historic Records Advisory Board, in conjunction with the Indiana State Library and Indiana Commission on Public Records, are hosting and teaching the workshop.
            This workshop introduces fundamental concepts for managing your digital content over time through a series of six modules:
Identify – what digital content do you have?
Select – what portion of that content is your responsibility to preserve?
Store – what issues are there for long-term storage?
Protect – what steps need to be taken to protect your digital content?
Manage – what provisions should be made for long term management?
Provide – what considerations are there for long term access?

Intended Audience:
            A. People responsible for managing and preserving digital content (such as such as websites, email, electronic records, and digital photos, music, and video)
            B. City/county clerks, recorders, IT staff; staff at libraries, archives, historical societies, museums who are responsible for digital content
            C. People with little-to-no knowledge of digital preservation basics
It’s important to emphasize that this is a very basic overview of concepts and an introduction to resources for beginners/novices. It will not go into more specific/technical detail or advanced concepts.
            The workshop, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., includes a complementary lunch (courtesy of the SHRAB), and certified public library professionals in attendance can receive up to six Technology Library Education Units.
            The workshop is limited to 50 participants, so register today! Contact Stephanie Gowler at 317/591-5220 x376 for more information.
