Digital Preservation Training Programme
The DPTP is a modular training programme, built around themed sessions that have been developed to assist you in designing and implementing an approach to preservation that will work for your institution.
The next Digital Preservation Training Programme will take place on the 2nd-3rd October 2012, in the National Library of Ireland. The cost of the course is €650 or £522 including VAT. Booking is now open.
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.
