We still have a few spots available for our Digital POWRR Workshop taking place on Monday, Oct. 10, 2016 at the Atlanta History Center in Atlanta, GA.
This is a FREE, hands-on workshop that deals with the “How” of digital preservation, rather than the “Why” by 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.

Please note that this is not a workshop on how to digitize materials. However, the curriculum could be helpful to implement a digital preservation plan into a digitization project. The skills taught can be applied to both born-digital as well as digitized collections.
This workshop is made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor and is generously co-sponsored by the American Association for State and Local History.
We hope to see you in Atlanta!
This looks like a great event! Will you be holding anymore of these in the Atlanta area? We have a couple people here at our call center in Atlanta that may be interested in digital preservation.
