This webinar will discuss management of and access to digital content over the long term. Effective management of digital content requires planning, implementation, and sustainability, and includes organizational aspects such as policy development and training, and necessary resources such as designated funding. Long term access to digital content is the purpose of digital preservation. Providing access addresses the concepts, roles, and challenges involved in making digital content accessible over time, not of providing real-time access in the present. This webinar will also include a wrap-up of the digital preservation principles discussed throughout the series, and will encourage participants to identify preliminary steps for digital preservation activities at their home institution.
Other webinars in this series include:
- Identifying and Selecting Digital Content on June 2, 2014
- Storing and Protecting Digital Content on July 7, 2014
