Preserving Digital Collections

Katherine Fisher, Head of Digital Archives, Emory University Libraries
WEBINAR  |  Thursday, June 13, 2024, 1:00-2:30 PM

Learn about the basics of digital preservation, guiding principles for stewarding digital collections, and practical ways to get started or level up!

This webinar will review the basics of digital preservation, introduce key principles to guide archivists' decisions and actions, and outline practical advice for stewarding digital content. Topics include the building blocks of digital information, threats to digital content, digital preservation standards and models, common preservation methods and activities, and considerations at each stage of collection development and management. Archivists just beginning to collect or preserve digital content will improve their foundational knowledge and gain a clearer sense of next steps. Those with more digital archives experience or more mature digital preservation programs will be able to clarify their preservation goals, evaluate the current state of their collections, and identify ways to improve. Participants are encouraged but not required to participate in a poll-based activity and share experiences and observations from their work with digital archives. The webinar will include time for Q&A.

Please note that this webinar will not be recorded, so please plan to attended live.
