The idea was floated at the August RDPP meeting that an all-day workshop or symposium focusing on digital preservation workflows (things like ingest, validation, archiving, access, tools, etc.) would be of interest to area practicers. Possible content could include:
- Speakers discussing how to design a workflow
- Sharing workflows and tools that are currently in use
- Dedicated time to ask questions, group breakouts, etc.
The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor could host something like this on campus if there is interest. I have created a very short (only one required Y/N question!) survey here to garner feedback. If you think you would be interested in something like this, please fill it out and help shape the content! This survey (and any resulting symposium) is open to anyone who is interested.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
