Digital Preservation – The Planets Way: 17-19 November 2009Swiss Federal 
Archives, Bern, Switzerland***Apologies for cross-postings***Does your 
organisation know what to preserve digitally for the future? Do you know how to 
preserve your collections for the future? Have you decided which tools and 
services to use for this? Do you want to discuss your strategies for digital 
preservation with colleagues and experts?There has been an explosion in the 
volume of information world-wide which will grow to 1800 exabytes by 2011. But 
if action is not taken, that information can be lost within five to ten years 
due to hardware and software obsolescence.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 training event which will be presented by members of the Planets 
project and established experts in the field of digital preservation. The event

libraries and other large content 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
