The workshop will be led by internationally recognized digital preservation
experts: Nancy McGovern (Director of Digital Preservation at MIT Libraries)
and Kari Smith (Senior Digital Archivist at MIT Institute Archives), along
with guest instructors and presenters in-person and virtually. This
iteration of the workshop will also feature a keynote presentation by
Evelyn McLellan, President of Artefactual Systems.

The Digital Preservation Management Workshops, a series presented since
2003, incorporate community standards and exemplars of good practice to
provide practical guidance for developing effective digital preservation
programs. The goals of the workshop are to foster critical thinking in a
technological realm and provide the means for exercising practical and
responsible stewardship of digital assets in an age of technological

The workshop includes interactive presentations, group discussions,
exercises, individual assignments, and a keynote presentation by an
international expert in digital preservation. Workshop attendees explore
the range of components needed to develop an effective digital preservation
program. Workshop materials include action plans for organizations to
complete when participants return to their institutions. Action plans
result in organization-specific plans that incorporate technical,
financial, organizational, and policy aspects encompassing the full life
cycle of digital objects. The workshop focuses on strategies for
organizations to implement now, while research and development goes forward
in creating longer-term solutions that can be incorporated into the program

Workshop curriculum is continually updated to reflect the latest community
standards and practice. The workshop begins with the premise that you are
managing digital material and therefore does not specifically cover
digitization except in ensuring the quality of digitized and born digital
content to be preserved.

As a prerequisite for the workshop, we ask participants to work through the
Digital Preservation Management Tutorial – a free resource for anyone
interested in learning the foundations for digital preservation and as a
starting point for advanced discussions. For more information about the DPM
workshop and DP Tutorial please see: http://www.dpworkshop.org

closes whenever the workshop reaches capacity. Please register soon to
