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 took place at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.  

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.
