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 ( 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!

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?
