Registration is open for the third SCAPE Project training event: https://scape-preservation-planning.eventbrite.co.uk. Registration will close on Wednesday 6 November 2013.

This two-day event will guide delegates through the steps of the SCAPE Preservation Planning and Watch lifecycle. It will begin with an introduction to the SCAPE Planning and Watch ecosystem, its components and how they support the full lifecycle of digital objects. Delegates will learn about both human-readable and machine-readable policy drivers and will create policy statements for digital collections. Following this, delegates will be introduced to a number of tools that have been developed or extended as part of the SCAPE project. These include the content-profiling tool, C3PO, which will enable you to perform deep analysis of your digital content; Scout, a preservation watch system which can detect preservation risks and opportunities through its knowledge base and automatically notify users of new risks and opportunities; and Plato, a decision-making tool that implements a solid preservation planning process and integrates services for content characterisation, preservation action and automatic object comparison.

Who should attend?
- Practitioners (digital librarians and archivists, digital curators, repository managers, or anyone responsible for managing digital collections) To get the most out of this training course you will ideally have some knowledge or experience of digital preservation.
- Developers who are interested in learning about automated preservation planning and policies.
