In 2013, the course was revised by Holly Robertson, Preservation Consultant, to include emerging preservation issues such as digitization, digital preservation, audiovisual preservation, and sustainable environmental practices. For the 2015 course, NEDCC’s Preservation Services department undertook a major review process to update existing content, expand certain topics, and improve usability.
