NCompass Live: Digital Preservation, Part 1: Inventory and Selection - Recorded Online Session 


Digital Preservation is the focus of a three-part webinar series that will help you preserve your digital content. Sponsored by the Nebraska State Historical Society and the Nebraska Library Commission, these webinars will connect you to Library of Congress training modules. The LC’s Digital Preservation Outreach Education (DPOE) program simplifies the complex world of digital preservation into six tasks modules: inventory, select, storage, protect, manage, and provide.

The February 6 webinar will focus on the Inventory and Select Modules: The first step in digital preservation is identifying what types of digital content needs to be preserved. Learn the importance of conducting and maintaining an inventory of your digital content and how that inventory will assist you in setting priorities and selecting what should be preserved.

All three webinars will be presented by Karen Keehr, Curator of Photographs at the Nebraska State Historical Society. Karen represented Nebraska at an intensive week-long DPOE training workshop this summer. These webinars are the first in a series of training opportunities for libraries, archives and museums that will be presented in 2013-14 as part of the newly-formed Husker Heritage NEtwork, funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
