December 5-6, 2006
The Marriott University Park Hotel

THE PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY conference, taught by leading experts in digital preservation, addresses the question of managing and preserving digital assets over the long term. Institutions are rapidly acquiring collections of digitized and born-digital resources. Without intervention, these materials will not survive even a single human career. This conference will highlight evolving best practices for digital preservation and will help institutions take the next steps to preserve their investment.

Conference cost: $325

Registration deadline: Friday, November 10, 2006

To encourage diverse participation in the Persistence of Memory conference, NEDCC is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships that will cover the registration fee.
