Digital Preservation – The Planets Way: 19-21 April 2010

Registration is now open for the final Planets training and outreach event, which takes place in Rome with the support of the Pontificia Università Gregoriana.


This is the final event in the series of five.

Day 1 will address the case for digital preservation, digital preservation as a risk management activity, the action that needs to be taken and introduce the Planets framework, tools and services as an integrated approach to digital preservation. Local organisations will present two case studies to show how they are preserving digital collections.

Days 2 and 3 provide an opportunity to meet and learn from the experts, creators and developers of Planets. Using a sample collection, you will gain hands-on experience of Planets tools and services. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, network with peers and to try out tools and exercises.

Register now for day 1 only at a cost of EUR95 or for the whole three-day event at a cost of EUR199 at:

Places are limited and registration will close on 9 April 2010.
