Event: Digital Preservation Training Programme

Digital Preservation Training Programme
Birmingham Conference Park, 20th – 24th March 2006

Booking is now open for the second Digital Preservation Training Programme. This is an intensive one week residential course to be held at Birmingham Conference Park, 20th - 24th March 2006.

Topics covered will include: planning and strategy, OAIS, tools, metadata, costs, risk management, legal issues, web archiving, access plus much more.

The pilot version of this training programme took place in October 2005 and received very positive comments from attendees and through a process of independent evaluation. Comments included:

“Overall an excellent series of seminars. Pre-course material was invaluable... I will be thoroughly recommending the course to colleagues.”

"The overall approach was good and I was positively surprised that it was a real workshop with hands-on exercises."

“...the most beneficial and well presented, thought out course that I've ever attended in 10 years as a professional.”

DPTP's development is funded by JISC under its Digital Preservation and Asset Management programme. The project is led by ULCC, working with its partners: the Digital Preservation Coalition and Cornell University. It builds on the excellent foundations of Cornell's Digital Preservation Management Workshop, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Places are limited to 24 to ensure a good presenter/student ratio and maximum participation from delegates. Booking is open to all and we welcome applications from elsewhere in Europe. Booking will close at 5pm Friday, 10th March.

You will be advised whether your booking was successful by email on the first working day following your request.

The full price for this course is £1100 but a reduced rate of £950 will be available to those that book before March 1st.
