Event: DPC/RSP/DCC/JISC Workshop. Tackling the Preservation Challenge:
Practical Steps for Repository Managers 


Date: 12th December 2008

Venue:    Novotel Hotel, Euston Road, London


We all know that preservation of repository content is vital -- but we also
know that in practical terms it remains largely unresolved.  What should we
be doing right now to embed preservation into the working practice of
repositories?  Who should we be talking to? 


Are there tools and services out there which can support repository managers
in their work today?  Are preservation experts and services tuned into the
practical workflow requirements of their repository manager colleagues?  If
this has any resonance then this event is for you! 


The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), the Repositories Support Project
(RSP), the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) and the JISC are organising a joint
workshop on the 12th December at the Novotel Hotel, Euston, London. The
intention is to bring together key stakeholders, the repository managers and
preservation experts, at a practical focussed event to talk together and
share perspectives, requirements, problems and solutions.  It is hoped that
the workshop will lead to collective recommendations for what the next moves
for repository managers and preservation specialists should be to provide
practical focussed support, services and tools. The workshop should in
addition further repository managers' understanding of how to implement
preservation strategies and processes.

As well as the formal presentations there will also be a marketplace when
there will be an opportunity to view posters, and engage with project teams
and see demonstrations of the latest tools. The day will close with a
participative discussion session. 


Prior to the event the organisers shall gather concerns and requirements
from repository managers and preservation experts/services and synthesise
these into 'Top 5 Concerns', 'Top 5 Wishes' and 'Top 5 Solutions' (for
practical implementation). These will then be collated to form the basis for
the panel discussion.

Who should attend?

Repository managers, librarians, archivists, digital preservation experts,
information management specialists, service providers.
