CoSA-Preservica Practical Digital Preservation core training webinar module 1
May 10, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Open and of interest to anyone grappling with digital preservation challenges, CoSA’s Practical Digital Preservation exposes participants to workflows, processes and real-world examples of digital preservation in action.
The series, which launched in Fall 2015, combines longer format core digital preservation modules such as this one (free – registration is required) with supplemental “How-To” webinars ($25 for non-CoSA members).
This 2 x 2 hour online workshop is an in-depth practical training into the key concepts and processes of Digital Preservation reinforced by demonstrations of the complete OAIS (Open Archival Information Systems) (ISO 14721) lifecycle – ingest, data management, storage, preservation, administration and access.
The aim is to move beyond Digital Preservation acronyms and theory to give participants a fuller appreciation of the practical workflows, processes and considerations of real-world usage. The session will include specific examples of preserving Emails, long-term non-permanent records and websites as well include a next steps summary to outline how attendees can move their digital preservation project on to the next stage.
