Chris Erickson (Project Director: May 2010 to April 2012)

A preservation workshop to assist sixteen cultural repositories in Utah, including academic libraries and museums, state and local government, historic sites, and religious archives in managing and preserving their extensive digital collections. These collections include ancient texts, Western newspapers, genealogical materials, European political pamphlets, and artwork.

This project is to present the Digital Preservation Management Workshop. The goals of the workshop are to foster critical thinking in a technological realm and provide the means for exercising practical and responsible stewardship of digital assets in an age of technological uncertainty. The workshop sessions are geared towards making a digital preservation program doable for any organization. Other institutions in the state will be invited to attend this important workshop.
