BUILDING THE COMMUNITY: A DIGITAL PRESERVATION SYMPOSIUM
Exploring research, assessment, and practical experience in a participatory meeting
Join a small group of colleagues from a range of organizations for a day of discussion about the state of digital preservation practice and the National Digital Stewardship Agenda. With a focus on digital preservation program assessment, the day will include case studies and research data gathered from the digital preservation environment in recent years. The Symposium agenda will be grounded in open conversation about the successes and limitations that organizations experience in the real world, as well as how leaders and funders can support meaningful progress in the field. The day will include a keynote address, facilitated participation among attendees, and panels of practitioners and service providers.
If your institution is caring for digital collections of any kind or size, this meeting will be a unique opportunity to share your knowledge and experience and to learn from colleagues working on similar challenges. If you conduct research or assessment in the field of digital preservation, or are a funder of preservation projects and initiatives, this meeting will provide an in-depth exploration of current practice and challenges faced by stewards of digital collections.
