State Archives to offer Workshops on Digital Preservation
SALEM – The first in a series of one hour workshops on basic digital preservation is scheduled for Wednesday, March 28th from 10am to noon at the State Archives located at 800 Summer Street NE, in Salem.
This first workshop titled Identify, will cover basic steps and techniques for identifying digital content and will provide instruction on creating a digital content inventory. Taking inventory of the digital content you have is the first step in developing a plan to ensure your content is available both now and into the future.
Subsequent workshops will cover additional steps in the digital content preservation process. All workshops will be lead by Austin Schulz of the State Archives staff. Austin recently attended the Digital Preservation Outreach and Education training at the Library of Congress. The training was part of a national effort to encourage individuals and organizations to actively preserve their digital content and consists of five modules geared toward individuals seeking a basic introduction to digital content preservation.
The workshops are open to the public. Although the sessions are free of charge, pre-registration is required. To register simply e-mail State Archives at: email@example.com and type “Digital Preservation Workshop” in the subject line.
If you have any questions or would like to register by phone, please contact Austin Schulz at (503) 378-5161.
