Managing Digital Content Over Time: An Introduction to Digital Preservation
While many of the traditional resources found in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions--books, photographs, objects--can survive for years with no intervention, digital content is much more fragile. Managing it requires ongoing care and preservation activities to ensure continued access far into the future.  This online course introduces fundamental concepts for managing and preserving your digital content over time. This 2-part virtual course will take place on April 27th and May 4, with optional office hours on May 11th.
