Digital Preservation Planning: Choosing Systems
Archivists from the Pennsylvania State Archives will share how they are managing and prioritizing digital preservation, highlighting the challenges faced in current projects. Although they do not have a preservation system currently in place, they are working towards the procurement of one. Similarly, archivists and librarians at the University of Pennsylvania worked collaboratively on common solutions for digital collections preservation among many silos. They will focus on a pilot project evaluating Preservica and hosted Archivematica, how these systems can be used in receiving, processing, storing born- digital records, and the next steps for a project done completely virtually. Presentations will be followed by a discussion with the panel and audience on digital preservation planning best practices.
