Looking Back, Moving Forward: sharing our digital preservation journeys

Thursday 4 November, 10am - 11.30am

 Sharing digital preservation journeys.... learning from the experience of others...reflecting on our own digital preservation progress.

This year the World Digital Preservation Day theme is ’Breaking Down Barriers’. It is a time to share and discuss the challenges we have faced, opportunities we have embraced and progress we have made. Hearing about the work of others gives us all an opportunity to make digital preservation and community activities understandable, relatable and accessible to all.
Join us for this  online morning event, which brings together members of the broader Irish library, archive and digital preservation community to discuss some of these challenges and opportunities in the context of the ongoing need to consider long term digital preservation.
This online event is aimed at archivists, librarians and others thinking about or working with digital content whether born digital or the outputs of digitisation. All are welcome, but booking is essential. This event is with live captioning.
