Workflow Symposium for early Summer at UM?

Hello all!  Lance and I are beginning to put together the symposium.  If you can share specifics of what types of workflows that you are most interested in covering that would be appreciated.  Also, any ideas for guest speakers?

RDPP Meeting this coming Monday!

Hello all!
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting!  The time is 6-9pm at University of Detroit Mercy Library.  Snacks will be available.  Thanks to Pat Higo our hostess!

We look forward to a great discussion about the efforts and levels of preservation that you are each attempting.

I will also present a summary of my survey (thanks to all that filled them out).

A re-cap of key concepts from the Mid-Michigan RDPP will also be presented.
As always, Lance and I want to keep this informal and open so anything else that you want to cover relevant to Digital Preservation and Curation is fine!

Parking: Parking is free on campus-might be a very busy, its the first day of
classes. Recommend people use the McNichols entrance as being closest to
the library, park in the student area, only a few slots in the visitor
part of the lot. Library is about the center of the campus, they should
not have any problem seeing the sign in front of the library. Library is
on McNichols campus.

Let me know if you have questions.  Lance and I are so thrilled at how many people are getting involved to help each other!

Next RDPP Meeting

Monday, August 26th is the date for our next Regional Digital Preservation Practitioners meeting for Toledo/Detroit/Ann Arbor/Ontario.

The time is 6-9pm at University of Detroit Mercy(more details to follow). We look forward to a great discussion about the efforts and levels of preservation that you are each attempting.

As a reminder, I have a survey for those that may have missed it three weeks ago. It was technically due Sunday, but I would really like more input so if you could take 10 minutes to fill it out, I would really appreciate it! The results will be posted on our WordPress site (https://digitalpreservationpractitioners.wordpress.com/) and results will be anonymous per institution. I am only looking at trends.  It is attached in the link below.

It would be really valuable research for us all to benchmark where we all are in the Digital Preservation fight!

I thank you in advance for your efforts! Lance and I are so thrilled at how many people are getting involved to help each other!

Also, Mid-Michigan is planning their own RDPP Meeting for August 2 so we may see some of you there! http://archives.msu.edu/about/about_conferences.php?about_conferences
RDPP Survey Questions Final General Version

Meeting Planning

Hello Everyone!

It is getting to be that time again, before we run off for vacations, we are trying to set a date for the next RDPP Meeting.

Here is the Doodle Poll to fill out in order to confirm our time.  The University of Detroit Mercy has graciously agreed to host.

We also had “homework” to review the NDSA Levels of Digital Preservation and see how they apply to our needs.  Was there any discussion that we wanted to start on this?

Digital Preservation in a Box

I wanted to send this to you as promised from the first meeting.  NDSA is welcoming comments on the usability of this content, so let me know if you have suggestions.  We consider this a big first step but much more needs to be done.

The below is a blog post about the project to give you context and the hyperlink is also in the article.
