h3. {color:#333333}{*}To do list for content owners:*{color}

* bring all available digital preservation documents, plans, strategy etc... currently in place at institution to work from and build upon ... and useful links
* if owners have none... that's ok ... as most of us have only drafts or none (but looking at the caliber of the content owners they will most likely have one)
* workflow diagrams for getting content in and pushing content out (again... if they have them great.... most likely there will be none)
* bring content and issues related to quality assurance

*Goals for the content owners:*

* understand their own workflows and learn from other content owners (*sharing best practice*)
* create draft preservation plans to take home and continue working on and also to share with wider community for comment and ideas (many of the institutions would have them? already?)
* pilot embedding tools into their live systems to undertake quality assurance of content in systems (homework for when they return to institution or do it there if they can)
* key goals for preservation planning

h5. *Activities:*

*workflow, quality assurrance and preservation tools:*

* so we are spending 3 days on quality assurance tools, what will you do with them when you get home?
*  are the current tools fit for purpose?   OAIS model (short-course) need to assess people's experience with OAIS first to scope how deep we go into this if at all
* do you know where your content is?  is it safe? what is your 2 - 5 - 10 - 20 - 100 year plan (we can't see into the future so can we plan that way?)

*Some questions for discussion* (looking at the caliber of the attendees, the discussion and sharing of best practice may be most effective)

*Resources for discussion:*

[Joint Digital Preservation Workshop|]

Sharing expertise, knowledge and experiences (this is *borrowed from* a [JISC page, links at bottom of page to word docs|])

* Where is your repository located? What software do you use?
* How long has your Repository been in operation?  How is your Repository funded?
* What type of content is your Repository responsible for? text, images, research data
* What are the primary responsibilities of your Repository? (e.g. access, preservation)
* What policies guide the functioning of your Repository?
* What standards does your Repository use?
* Is your Repository based on the OAIS model?
* What are the main challenges your Repository faces?
* What aspects of your Repository work well?
* What projects/research etc. have been most useful to you? 

*Thinking lifecycles and identifying challenges*

* What are the main elements of the digital life-cycle?  How useful is the concept of life-cycle management? 
* In terms of managing digital content throughout its life-cycle, what aspects are the most challenging?
* Where would automation most help and why?
* What are the key challenges for Repositories in research, infrastructure, and policy?
* Should institutional repositories do everything? How might shared / distributed models of lifecycle management work? 

*Identifying gaps and needs*

* Where are the gaps in our knowledge and understanding?
* What three things would most help?
* Who might help? How might we fill the gaps/take advantage of others work?

*Activities For Day 2:*

*check the garden.... how is the wiki going*

*have you given content to the coder?*

*digital preservation plans (*
