A Primer on Digital Preservation Part 2: The Keys to Planning

Day and Time: July 20th, 6:30-8:30pm

Description: Preservation planning is vital because it can impact the quality and longevity of the materials you are trying to take care of. In this workshop, participants will learn how to approach digital preservation planning for audiovisual materials. We will look at strategies and resources around planning, covering key issues such as scope, scale, workflows, documentation, technology, and capacity. Participants will leave with the ability to assess their preservation practices and with a preservation plan draft to help them design their own preservation plan.
