Digital Preservation: The Planets Way

19 - 21 April 2010
Pontificia Università Gregoriana, Rome

Overview

While we can produce and share information in digital form at an increasing rate and store data in an ever smaller space, the span of time over which we can confidently keep hold of it is diminishing.

To retain information to comply with regulatory/governance reasons, for business continuity, or for other valuable purposes, we must take action to ensure that this information will still be available in the future.

The final in the series of Planets three-day training events will take place in Rome.

Day 1 will address the case for digital preservation, digital preservation as a risk management activity, the action that needs to be taken and introduce the Planets framework, tools and services as an integrated approach to digital preservation. Local organisations will present two case studies to show how they are preserving digital collections.

Days 2 and 3 provide an opportunity to meet and learn from the experts, creators and developers of Planets. Using a sample collection, you will gain hands-on experience of Planets tools and services. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, network with peers and to try out tools and exercises.
