Arkivum webinar: Digital preservation put into practice

In our second webinar of the series we delved into the world of open-source tools and techniques for digital preservation. We looked at how simple tools and established best practice can be applied to help organisations both large and small get onto the preservation ladder.

We showed how everyone can make successful steps towards protecting valuable content so it remains safe, secure, accessible and usable into the future. The focus of the webinar was on using maturity models and critical thinking to decide how to get started and then what practical steps can be taken to implement digital preservation right now. Some of the approaches we looked at included parsimonious preservation, NDSA preservation levels and the DPCMM maturity model.
