The workshop is intended as a primer in digital preservation. It introduces central concepts of digital preservation, providing participants with a common terminology to understand an (idealized) preservation and dissemination workflow.

The workshop will have a strong focus on organizational rather than technical issues and will include the following topics:

- What is digital preservation and why do we need it?

- The OAIS reference model

- Acquisition policies and selection criteria

- Licensing research data for preservation and re-use

- Communicating with user communities

- Trusted digital repositories.

Target group:

Archivists, repository staff, research data center staff, anyone responsible for (planning) the curation and preservation of digital assets.

This course is for you

- if you work in an organization or project planning to set up an archive or repository for digital preservation,

- or if your organization already has established a repository or archive but has not systematically considered aspects of digital preservation.
