Registration is open for Digital POWRR workshop
Register now for the free Digital POWRR workshop: http://digitalpowrr04222016.eventzilla.net
The workshop will be held Friday, April 22, at Arkansas Studies Institute, Little Rock, AR.
This full-day workshop is made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor. The workshop was created as a result of an IMLS-funded study on identifying practical digital preservation solutions for small- and mid-sized libraries. We will not be addressing the “why” of digital preservation; rather, we are preparing for the “how.”…providing hands-on, practical experience. Attendees will practice the accession of a digital collection using a simple, open source tool; learn about several digital preservation tools and services; and create an institution-specific action plan for making progress towards digital preservation goals.
