DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE), Preservation and Long-term Access through Networked Services (Planets), Cultural, Artistic and Scientific knowledge for Preservation, Access and Retrieval (CASPAR) and Network of expertise in Digital long-term preservation (nestor) are delighted to announce that they will be delivering the latest in a series of collaborative training initiatives to introduce the Preservation Challenges.

Participation in the workshop will give to participants an awareness and understanding of the key digital preservation issues and challenges, and a good knowledge of the reference model for Open Archival Information System (OAIS). It will also provide an understanding of the role and use of metadata and representation information needed for preservation, a good knowledge of the preservation planning process and its benefits to overall digital preservation strategies, and an appreciation of the range of roles and responsibilities involved with digital preservation activities.

Most of the above concepts will be illustrated by the use of several tools being developed by the major European projects on preservation. Finally, it is planned to have a number of brief break out sessions where the participants, divided in small groups, will have the opportunity to review and discuss among them the topics presented during the lectures, with the assistance and the guidance of the presenters themselves.
