Eric Williams-Bergen, Director of Digital Initiatives, has been awarded a travel scholarship to attend the workshop entitled  From Theory to Action: A Pragmatic Approach to Digital Preservation. This workshop will take place at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN on June 10, 2016.  

The travel scholarships and the Digital POWRR Workshops are made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.

The workshop was created as a result of an IMLS-funded study on identifying practical digital preservation solutions for small- and mid-sized libraries. The session will not be addressing the “why” of digital preservation; rather, preparing for the “how.”...providing hands-on, practical experience. Attendees will practice the accession of a digital collection using a simple, open source tool; learn about several digital preservation tools and services, and create an institution-specific action plan for making progress towards digital preservation goals.
