Digital Preservation Advanced Practitioner Course 2014
7th-11th July 2014
Austrian National Library, Vienna
After the success of last year’s workshop, we are delighted to announce the
return of this training event organised by APARSEN and presented in
collaboration with TIMBUS.
This week-long event at the Austrian National Library in Vienna will bring
together practitioners and researchers at the leading edge of digital
preservation, providing attendees with training at an advanced level. The
training will aim to cover issues across the digital preservation lifecycle by
addressing topics within four main themes: identifying the key issues of
digital preservation, understanding the value of digital data, managing and
preserving your data and establishing trustworthy repositories. The training
will be presented as a mix of presentations, practical exercises and group
The course is the second iteration of what will become a yearly event to be
presented from 2015 by the Virtual Centre of Excellence developed out of
APARSEN. It will bring together those at the forefront of digital preservation
research and training, and it is intended for managers and staff already
working in digital preservation. It assumes a working knowledge of existing
standards like the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) as well as an
understanding of how issues of preservation apply to their own institution.
Course fees are 250€ for 5 days, and this includes lunch and refreshments but
not accommodation. Registration is now open via the APARSEN website:
