How to fund and solve your digital preservation challenges
What was the event all about?
This event will help to make your digital preservation more effective by demonstrating the best community focused approaches and results from the JISC funded SPRUCE Project. You'll be hearing from the SPRUCE Team experts and from the practitioners and developers who have been tackling digital preservation challenges in targeted SPRUCE Award projects. We'll also be hearing from you, so we can take on board what you need from our future work.
- If you're taking your first steps in preserving your digital assets we will demonstrate how to get started, where to get help, and how to make the case to resource your work more effectively.
- If you're already engaged in digital preservation we'll show how your efforts can be supported more effectively with help from the community.
Key topics we will be covering include:
- Securing funding for your digital preservation activities with the Digital Preservation Business Case Toolkit
- Community approaches to solving digital preservation challenges
- SPRUCE guides on how to assess your digital collections
- Stabilising data stored on obsolete hand-held media
- Results from the SPRUCE Award Projects
Who was it for?
Practitioners, developers and middle managers who are engaged (or would like to be engaged) in preserving their organisation's digital assets.
When did the event take place
The event will took place at 11am on the 25th November 2013 at the brand new Library of Birmingham.
