Arkivum CTO Dr Matthew Addis is looking forward to participating in the DPC event ‘What I Wish I Knew Before I Started’ which takes place in London on 24th January 2018.
The DPC, with support from CoSector at the University of London, the ARA, IRMS, Mirror Web and others is pleased to invite students, researchers and new professionals in archives, records management and librarianship to a one day conference on practical workplace skills in digital preservation. This conference will bring a select group of leading practitioners together with the next generation of archivists, records managers and librarians to discuss the challenges of digital collections management and digital preservation.
The day will open with a consideration of digital preservation basics and a scan of emerging trends in digital preservation. In the afternoon, a group of invited speakers will reflect on ‘what I wish I knew before I started’, or ‘what I actually do all day’ giving delegates an advantage in their own career development and helping those who frame the curriculum a chance to extend their students’ readiness for the workplace. The day will end with a round table session, allowing delegates to ask questions about digital preservation practice and careers.
