Received in email...I do not know if space is still available.

Staying on TRAC: Digital Preservation Implications & Solutions for Collaboratives 
San Jose, CA

When it comes to developing a long-term digital preservation program, knowledge is power. That is why BCR and LYRASIS have partnered to bring you the Staying on TRAC: Digital Preservation Implications & Solutions for Collaboratives (formerly the Digital Preservation for Digital Collaboratives Workshop).

Using CRL/OCLC Trustworthy Repositories Audit and Certification: Criteria and Checklist (TRAC) as the  foundation, the workshop will provide you with the information and tools you need to plan, assess, and outline a digital preservation plan for sustaining collaboratively generated digital content. 
Workshop attendees will explore implemented solutions including ExLibris’ Rosetta, OCLC’s Digital Archive, Tessella’s Safety Deposit Box, Chronopolis from University of California San Diego, Educopia Institute’s MetaArchive, and DAITTS from Florida Center for Library Automation.

The workshop will consist of the following webinars and in-person session:

1st webinar, July 13, 1-3 pm ET:
• Introduction to the Digital Preservation Landscape
• Digital Preservation Standards
2nd webinar, July 14, 1-3 pm ET:
• Sustaining the Digital Investment: Developing a Digital Preservation Program
3rd webinar, July 16, 1-3 pm ET:
• Developing Preservation Policies for Collaboratives

In-Person Sessions, August 3-4:
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, San Jose, CA
• Day 1: Elements of TRAC and Using TRAC in Planning and Assessment
• Day 2: Technology (TRAC III: Technologies & Technical Infrastructure), including panel presentation of implemented solutions.

LYRASIS will provide post-workshop webinars and support to assist collaborative teams in completing their preservation plans.

BONUS:  Five collaboratives who complete their plans will be selected for an onsite digital preservation readiness assessment. Each assessment will be conducted by two of the faculty members.

Workshop Fee: 

The cost to attend this invaluable workshop is $150 for the first member of a registered collaborative team, and $75 for additional on-site attendees from the same collaborative team. At least one member of the collaborative team must attend all sessions (two team members are encouraged). Additionally, all members of the collaborative may participate in the webinar sessions and through the use of technology, onsite attendees will be able to communicate with all team members during sessions of the workshop.

NOTE: The fee covers the webinars and in-person session as well as all workshop materials, and post-workshop online activities. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided at in-person session.
