About the Workshop
            Building on the Library of Congress’ Digital Preservation Outreach Education (DPOE), this workshop will teach you how to successfully prepare for a digital collection project at your shop. In particular, it will explore the need and process for inventorying digital holdings you have or will have, the requirements for systems to help manage those digital records, the process of choosing suitable systems, and some implementation considerations.
            This will be part interactive event and participants will join in exercises of estimations, debating options and justifying decisions against the three following contexts:
Case 1: Small Archive or Special Collection within a Library
Case 2: Medium Archive or Collection of a Historical Society, Museum or Corporation
Case 3: Large Archive or Collection within a University
Participants will work in homogeneous groups to discuss and come up with answers together.

He manages the digital accessions, and advises the IARA Director and State Archivist on electronic records projects, issues, implementations.
