March 26, 2009 -- The MetaArchive Project helped sponsor Community Approaches to Digital Preservation 2009 (external link), a February 20, 2009 conference focusing on collaborative approaches to digital preservation services.

The event featured speakers from a number of digital preservation efforts, including the Echo-DEPository Project, DataPASS and LOCKSS.

A highlight of the meeting was a presentation by Sarah Higgins of the Digital Curation Centre (external link), who provided an abbreviated workshop outlining the DCC Curation Lifecycle Model (external link). The model is intended as tool for use in conjunction with relevant standards to plan curation and preservation activities.
