Deepen your digital preservation knowledge with a new offering from 
LYRASIS.Join us for /Staying on TRAC: Digital Preservation Implications 
and Solutions for Cultural Heritage Institutions/ at the LYRASIS offices 
in Atlanta, Georgia, on February 15-16, 2011 (pre-workshop webinars 
begin January 24, 2011).

/Staying on TRAC/ is targeted toward representatives from organizations 
who have acquired or created digital content and are now ready to 
address the issue of long term access to digital collections by 
partnering with other organizations. These partnerships can be existing 
or newly forming intra- or inter-institutional collaborative efforts for 
digital preservation.

The session will cover key digital preservation planning topics including:

  * assessing your local situation;

  * determining your organizational, functional, and technical needs;

  * matching needs to current digital preservation solutions.

The workshop helps participants develop their own digital preservation 
planning document, and allows time for group exercises and 
feedback.Faculty for the workshop includes digital preservation experts 
Robin Dale (LYRASIS), Liz Bishoff (The Bishoff Group), Priscilla Caplan 
(Florida Center for Library Automation), Katherine Skinner 
(MetaArchive), and Tom Clareson (LYRASIS).

In addition to the on-site class, there are three mandatory Pre-Workshop 
Webinars scheduled for January 24, 25, and 27.A series of six post-class 
webinars will allow additional time to consider current digital 
preservation services and complete a written digital preservation plan.
