"It is fantastic working alongside practitioners to address real concerns and find some grassroots solutions to the thorny issues of digital preservation." Mashup participant in 2012
Focus of the Mashup event
SPRUCE Mashups provide the perfect environment to work closely with your peers and solve concrete digital preservation challenges. Practitioners will (bring along and) contribute their digital data and their requirements, and will have the chance get their challenges solved, while building a business case to help them get the resources they need to preserve their data. Developers will have the chance to work closely with practitioners and solve their digital challenges while working alongside some of the top technical experts in the digital preservation field. Whether you're a digital preservation expert or a novice, there's something for everyone at our world renowned digital preservation mashups.
For more information on how our mashups work, what you will get out of them, and what attendees have said about our events, check out: Just what is a SPRUCE Mashup and what's in it for me?
