Doing Digital Preservation

For libraries that collect and create digital objects, digital preservation is the elephant in the room. Digital objects are fragile and even libraries that are careful about backing up their collections must still hope for the best. This session identifies common threats to digital objects, explores Open Archival Information System (OAIS) basics, and offers practical solutions for preserving electronic collections. Learners will gain the confidence and skills to build a sustainable digital preservation program.
