This course will help you understand that different digital preservation tools/services can perform different functions within the digital curation lifecycle, and will teach methods for investigating and selecting potential tools/services. The focus will be on low-cost and free tools and services. The instructors will cover how to build daily workflows that incorporate accessioning digital materials (both born-digital and previously digitized), processing them, and planning for their long-term preservation.

The focus of this course is on preservation, and not on access or digitization of materials. We will not be addressing the "why" of digital preservation; rather, we are preparing for the "how" of making informed decisions regarding tool selection and demonstrating some tools in action. An introductory knowledge of digital preservation issues, such as those outlined in the Library of Congress's Digital Preservation Outreach & Education Curriculum, is required.
