Title: Doing Digital Preservation: Moving from Aspiration to Action - A Panel Talk

Date/Time: Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Location: Ryerson University Library & Archives, Room 405

Cost: Free (please RSVP)



One of the biggest challenges about preserving digital materials is taking the leap from knowing to doing. Good intentions can only get you so far, and it can seem daunting to start from the beginning, especially when your organization's higher-ups think you should be focusing on scanning more stuff, your policies and procedures are still awkward drafts, and you've got a pile of hard drives in a closet keeping you up at night. How have organizations bridged the gap and moved from aspiration to action? This panel of four practitioners will focus on the strategies, approaches and technical methods they've developed to bring preservation work into being, at varied scales and across different types of organizations.

The speakers are:

  • Amy Furness (Art Gallery of Ontario)
  • Steve Marks (University of Toronto)
  • Danielle Robichaud (University of Waterloo)
  • Sarah Romkey (Artefactual Systems)
The panel is taking place as part of the OCUL/COPPUL Digital Preservation Management Workshop. It is co-sponsored by the Toronto Area Archivists' Group (TAAG). We are grateful for the venue and hosting support of the Ryerson University Library and Archives.

The Archives Association of Ontario (AAO) is led by a committed community of volunteers from across the province.
