[InetBib] Digital Preservation – The Planets Way: 22-24 June 2009, Royal Library Copenhagen, Denmark

***Apologies for cross-postings***  Does your organisation know what to 
preserve digitally for the future?  Do you want to discuss your strategies for
digital preservation with colleagues and experts? Do you know how to preserve 
collections for the future? Do you know which tools and services to use for 
 There has been an explosion in the volume of information world-wide
which will grow to 180 exabytes by 2011. But if action is not taken, that 
can be lost within five to ten years.   Digital Preservation – The Planets Way 
is an
opportunity to understand what may be done to manage digital content for the
long-term. The Planets project invites you to take part in the three-day 
event which will be presented by members of the Planets project and established
experts in the field of digital preservation. The event will take place at the 
Royal Library in Copenhagen on 22-24 June – and
is also an opportunity to visit Denmark’s
capital during the Midsummer’s Eve celebrations! The event has been subsidised 
to enable attendance. For the cost of 80
EUR to attend day one and 175 EUR to attend all three days, the event will help
you to make a start with, or advance, digital preservation activities in your
organisation.  Planets delivers a sustainable framework to enable archives, 
and other large collection holders to approach digital preservation confidently
and effectively. The Planets framework and tools, which range from preservation
planning to preservation action and the use of a testbed environment, will be
presented in full for the first time. The event will give you an insight into
the activities involved in preserving digital content and an opportunity to work
with Planets tools, with the help of their designers, programmers and
developers! On Day 1 you, as a decision-maker
or preservation staff, will get an understanding of the case for digital
preservation, the benefits versus the costs, the activities involved and how 
and Planets may fit into management activities. Keynote speaker, Dr. Ross King,
Austrian Research Centres, and Clive Billenness, Programme Manager, Planets, 
discuss digital preservation and its role in general risk management. The
National Library of the Netherlands
will explain how it is preserving its digital collections.   Days 2 and 3 are 
an opportunity to meet and learn
from the experts, creators and developers of Planets. Using a sample
collection, there will be the chance to gain hands-on experience of Planets
tools and services. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, 
with peers and to take home tools and exercises! You can see the full programme 
and register at http://www.planets-project.eu/events/copenhagen-2009/. Due to 
the nature of the event there is an upper capacity of 60
delegates on Day 1 and 40 delegates on Days 2 and 3.  If you have any questions 
about the event, please send an email to trainingevents@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx We 
look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen!
