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: 

This training event is co-funded by the European Community’s 7th Framework
