Preservation 101 Course - Ten Sessions, May 26-August 11

The Instructor-led Preservation 101: Preservation Basics for Analog and Digital Collections course gives participants the foundation needed to be effective collections stewards. This comprehensive introduction prepares participants to complete a preservation needs assessment and provides structured guidance on developing an institutional disaster plan. Revised and updated, the course uses the free online version of Preservation 101 as its textbook, adding expanded resources and assignments, interactive discussions, and new content covering audiovisual and digital formats and digital preservation. Putting theory into practice, participants will develop recommendations for improvement and a long-range preservation plan.

Preservation 101 is a hybrid course. A series of ten live webinars builds on self-paced study through assigned readings. Feedback will be provided by the instructor. The webinars are interactive, and are supported by NEDCC’s Preservation 101 Education Classroom. Participants will have access to webinar recordings, readings, and additional resources, and can communicate with the instructor and fellow participants.
