Full Description
Planning for the care of digital collections and services in the case of disaster is as important as planning for the care of analog collections, but often these intangible objects receive less attention. This webinar introduces the methods and tools for assessing and mitigating likely risks to digital materials within the context of responsible digital preservation practices, as well as ways to integrate response and recovery for digital collections into an institutional disaster plan.
 
Who should attend:
Librarians, archivists and anyone responsible for digital collections or services in a cultural heritage organization is encouraged to participate.
 
By the end of this program, participants will:
  • Understand the risks to digital collections and services;
  • Have a framework for prioritizing their recovery;
  • And be able to begin integrating digital assets into a collection-wide disaster plan.
