About the workshop
Since its development by Nancy McGovern in 2003, the Digital Preservation Management workshop has served as a fantastic resource for archivists and librarians who are interested in building and refining digital preservation programs at their institutions. There are no prerequisites for attending and individuals do not need to come with a high level of technical skill or expertise. The focus of the workshop includes details on the key standards and concepts in the field and methods for preparing organization-specific action plans geared towards the technical, financial, organization and policy aspects of managing digital objects into the future. The instructors at the workshop will be Nancy McGovern and Kari Smith of MIT Libraries.
