In this two-part Lyrasis workshop designed for heritage organization staff who are considering the long-term management of their digital assets, Ithaka S+R’s Oya Rieger will present strategies for assessing local preservation needs and selecting and implementing digital preservation curation systems and tools.

Heritage organizations use digital preservation and curation systems (DPCS) such as Preservica, MetaArchive, APTrust, Samvera, and others, to undertake digital preservation and curation work in the context of their institutional needs and priorities. We will discuss how these systems provide a framework for managing the various stages and processes involved in digital preservation including content acquisition, preparation for archiving, ingesting, storage, maintenance, access, and ongoing data management and preservation activities.

The workshops will take place on February 1 at 2:00pm and February 8 at 3:30pm ET. Visit the Lyrasis website to learn more and sign up.
