Four week-long workshops for advanced training in the preservation of digital materials in cultural institutions and six shorter topical workshops, addressing selected issues in depth. A total of 192 members of the managerial and technical staffs of collecting institutions would participate. In addition, an online introductory tutorial on the basics of digital preservation would be freely available.

This project will continue to develop and build on the Cornell core curriculum for the five-day version of this popular workshop series; develop and offer one-day and two-day advanced workshops on key themes and issues in response to requests from workshop participants; increase the base of experienced workshop instructors through the establishment and evaluation of a train-the-trainers program; and extend the reach of the workshop through the identification and coordination of a network of interested institutions and associations. Feasible and effective management of digital preservation programs by cultural organizations is essential as the extent and significance of digital content grows. This workshop provides managers (including content creators) in cultural organizations with the understanding, techniques, tools, and confidence to enable effective digital preservation management.
