||Code of Conduct|
Join us in beautiful Tucson, Arizona, for a comprehensive overview of digital preservation, presented by information professionals with deep experience in the preservation of cultural heritage materials. During the two-day training, you will learn about good practices and practical strategies for creating and managing digital collections, and you’ll gain confidence in decision-making for the preservation of your digital assets.
The program will introduce you to free resources and tools you can use for digital preservation, and you’ll make lasting connections with peers who face similar challenges. Participants return to their institutions with a clearer understanding of the next steps they should take to strengthen their organization’s digital preservation program.
Who Should Attend?
Are you just getting started in digitization and digital preservation? Trying to bring several digital projects together into a cohesive digital preservation program? Or are you well into a digital collections project and need a refresher on the latest standards and best practices?
The Digital Directions conference is geared toward professionals working with digital collections at archives, libraries, museums, historical organizations, government agencies, corporate archives, and other organizations that steward digital collections. Students are also welcome, and a discounted registration rate is available.
Past Participants Comment on Digital Directions:
Digital Directions helped assure me that the work we are doing at our institution is following best practices. I was really interested in the section on born-digital material and the issues involved with managing those collections. Thank you for a great conference! It was my first time attending, but it won't be my last.
Prior to coming to the conference, I knew this was something I needed to do for my organization. However, I was overwhelmed with even where to begin. I would look at resources and think: "This is good, but I need to start at the very beginning. What does that look like?" The conference provided me with information and resources that allowed me to better process where my organization is with this and where we need to go.
