As technology changes, the greatest threat to preserving digital files is
obsolescence. Files may get stuck on obsolete media or in some form that
may become unusable in time. This webinar can help increase your
understanding of what it takes to preserve commonly used digital files such
photos, recordings, videos and documents. Learn about the nature of the
digital-preservation challenge and hear about some simple, practical tips
and tools to help you preserve your digital stuff.

*May 1st - Disaster Response Q&A*

Once a disaster strikes, the knee-jerk reaction is to rush in and save
everything, but racing in without advance planning puts collections at risk
of more damage and staff at risk of injury. This session will feature a
live question-and-answer session. Participants will have an opportunity to
comment on the recording of the 2010 webinar, "Disaster Response
<http://alcts.ala.org/ce/0609_10_disaster_response.wmv>" and to ask
questions of Nancy Kraft.
