Digital Preservation Webinar: Identify & Select

Primary tabs

Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

The CARLI Digital Preservation Trainers are holding a four-webinar series on digital preservation. The webinars will cover the six digital preservation “modules” created by the Library of Congress’ Department of Digital Preservation Outreach and Education (DPOE). For more information about the DPOE curriculum, please visit:

This webinar will cover: Identification is the initial step in digital preservation and informs a library about the categories and types of files it may need or want to preserve. This webinar will introduce librarians to basic steps and techniques for preparing an inventory of digital content. Attendees will also learn how to apply selection criteria to your content to determine what should be preserved. Only by knowing the potential scope of a digital preservation project can one move on to reducing it through selection.

Audience: Librarians and IT staff involved in acquiring and creating digital materials, and those who are beginning to think about acquiring digital materials.  No previous experience in digital preservation is needed.
