Full Description
This session will highlight trends in Digital Preservation adoption among cultural heritage institutions that the instructors have gained over five years of research.  The presentation will review yet-to-be-published results from a 2011 survey, will provide participants with resources for determining their own institutional digital preservation needs, and includes interactive “on-the-spot” research on current digital preservation trends.
 
Who should attend:
Librarians, archivists, and museum professionals who create, maintain, or preserve digital collections.  The session is open to all but will be especially applicable to digital librarians, archivists, and curators, as well as institutional managers and administrators, and those with a background in traditional preservation
 
By the end of this program, participants will:
- Know what institutional policies must be updated to include digital materials.
- Learn some of the benefits of collaborative digital preservation.
- Know more about establishing institutional mandates for digital preservation.
