Preserving Digital Collections


In this session, Ann Marie Willer, Director of Preservation Services, NEDCC Northeast Document Conservation Center, discusses how organizations that have recordings of oral histories, digital or digitized photographs and documents, formatted video files, and other materials in digital form can take steps toward preserving these materials. This presentation outlines how assessment can make these challenges more manageable, and introduces newly-released, free resources for assessing digital preservation of collections. This session was part of the ATALM annual conference held in Prior Lake, Minnesota, on October 8-11, 2018.
