dc.description.abstract <p>Digital preservation remains a challenging and almost abstract idea for those responsible for ensuring the longevity of digital materials. During this lightning round session, seven information professionals will share practical, cost-effective, and realistic approaches to digital preservation. The conversations will be framed by the findings presented in “Trends in Digital Preservation Capacity and Practice,” published in the July/August 2017 issue of D-Lib Magazine, as well as by findings from the Beyond the Repository IMLS grant investigating the integration of local repositories with distributed preservation networks. This session will highlight trends in digital preservation in practice and offer an open conversation about “good enough” preservation steps that can be taken when you are faced with limited resources. Topics include: <ul> <li>Alternative preservation measures to combat costs associated with a quickly growing digital storage footprint;</li> <li>Reflections after five years of implementing a tiered approach for preservation of electronic college records;</li> <li>The challenges of creating, promoting, and managing Indiana Digital Preservation (InDiPres), a community-based digital preservation solution; </li> <li>Considerations when preserving audiovisual materials and large file formats;</li> <li>Integrating open source platforms to establish more robust and efficient preservation workflows; and</li> <li>Balancing the ideal vs. the real world when constructing an accessible digital preservation environment. </li> </ul></p> <p>This session is intended for anyone responsible for digital preservation, from those in initial planning, to those doing “boots on the ground” preservation, to special collections administrators. Information presented in this session will be useful for a variety of institutions with all sizes of digital collections, including those with minimal staff and funding.</p>
