Course Details

May 20th to May 22nd, 2013
London, England

The course content is aimed at multiple levels of attendee: people from technical and archival professions come together, to learn the same standards and methods for digital preservation. The overall aim of the course is critical thinking, assessing ways of acting and planning at an organisational level.

Through a wide range of modules, the DPTP examines the need for policies, planning, strategies, standards and procedures in digital preservation, and teaches some of the most up-to-date methods, tools and concepts in the area. It covers these topics via a mixture of lectures, discussions, practical tasks and exercises, and a class project. (The course does not, however, offer hands-on training with any of these tools, and is not an ‘enabling’ course).

Scheduled DPTP courses run over 2-3 days and take place regularly throughout the year. In addition, we can provide a version of the course customised to suit your individual institutional needs, and delivered on-site.
