Digital POWRR Workshops!

On June 9, we are conducting a FREE, day-long workshop in St. Paul entitled From Theory to Action: A Pragmatic Approach to Digital Preservation Tools and Strategies and we have about 10 spots left! We have another free workshop on July 7,  in San Antonio,and there are about 25 spots left!  These full-day workshops are made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The workshop was created as a result of an IMLS-funded study on identifying practical digital preservation solutions for small- and mid-sized libraries. We will not be addressing the “why” of digital preservation; rather, we are preparing for the “how.”…providing hands-on, practical experience. Attendees will practice the accession of a digital collection using a simple, open source tool; learn about several digital preservation tools and services; and create an institution-specific action plan for making progress towards digital preservation goals.
