Aligning National Approaches to Digital Preservation II: An Action Assembly
This event will assemble digital preservation leaders from a variety of backgrounds (including national libraries, academic libraries and archives, research centres, public libraries, information science/management programs, archives, corporations, and funding agencies) to carry out international alignment activities to support the preservation of our collective digital memory.
This Action Assembly will build upon the successes of the 2011 ANADP Conference in Estonia, in which more than 120 delegates from 24 nations established targeted alignment channels for their future efforts. These alignment channels were documented in the conference volume, Aligning National Approaches to Digital Preservation (Educopia, 2012), this year’s winner of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) Preservation Publication award. The first major action outcomes-an international tools/services registry, a framework for applying OAIS to Distributed Digital Preservation methodologies, a catalogue of education and training opportunities, and quantitative data gathering around digital preservation costs-will be delivered to the community at ANADP II this Fall.
