Event: Digital Preservation Training Programme

From the Digital Preservation discussion list.

Booking is now open for the pilot Digital Preservation Training Programme.
This is a one week residential course held at the University of Warwick.

DPTP is a project funded by JISC under its Digital Preservation and Asset Management programme, or JISC 4/04 as it is more commonly known. The project is led by ULCC, working with its partners the Digital Preservation Coalition, Cornell University and the British Library.

The project's aim is to develop a modular training programme with content aimed at multiple levels of attendee. It builds on the excellent foundations of Cornell's Digital Preservation Management Workshop, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The pilot is being developed by the project partners along with King's College London Digital Consultancy Services and ADS/AHDS Archaeology.

Subjects are likely to include:

* Planning and strategy
* Five organisational stages of digital preservation
* OAIS: initiatives and tools
* Living with obsolescence
* Mass storage
* Preservation approaches
* Metadata: overview and case study
* Web archiving
* Access
* Costs and risk management
* Legal considerations
* Outsourcing
* Certification
* Where do you go from here?

Places are strictly limited and will be assigned once all applications been received. Due to the nature of DPTP's funding, priority will be given to those from the UK HE and FE communities. Booking will close at 5pm on Friday September 16th.

You will be advised whether your booking was successful by email after September 16th.
