PDA Event: Digital POWRR: Digital Preservation 101

Tuesday, July 23, 2024 - 10:00am to 11:30am

This session of the Funding to Preservation: A Digital Content Life Cycle Webinar Series is designed for smaller, under-resourced organizations who understand the need for digital preservation but are not sure how to begin creating daily workflows that incorporate accessioning, processing, and storing digital materials (both born-digital collections and files from digitization projects). The digital curation lifecycle will be viewed through a practical lens and the class will step through an end-to-end workflow for a hypothetical digital collection using simple,  open-source digital preservation tools.
