2017 SIA Fall Workshop
Processing Digital Records for Access and Preservation:
What to Do and How to Do it
Date: Friday, October 20th, 2017
Location: IUPUI campus, Department of Library & Information Science, School of Informatics & Computing, 535 W. Michigan Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202
Through the generous co-sponsorship of IUPUI's, Department of Library and Information Science, School of Informatics and Computing, SIA is pleased to host a leader in the area of digital preservation, Dr. Christopher J. Prom, in Indianapolis this October for our annual fall workshop.
This workshop will take a "good, better, best" approach to managing born-digital records and will include an overview of Prom’s Archival Connections Research Project.
The archives and digital preservation communities do not lack for theories and case studies regarding digital preservation. But how should the line archivist turn the standards, processes and approaches developed for larger libraries into a flexible, efficient processing pipeline? In this hands-on workshop, you will explore practical workflows that can tame that growing backlog of digitized or born digital items—or can help you reach out to donors confidently, if you have yet to take the born-digital plunge. You'll also work through some hands-on exercises in small teams to actually process a digital collection, before discussing the pros and cons of various tools that you might wish to use to address more complex sets of records or problems.
