This webinar series is based upon the Library of Congress Digital Preservation Outreach and Education (DPOE) 
program which aims to foster national outreach and education to encourage individuals and organizations to actively preserve
their digital content. The multi-part webinar series will focus on how to collect, preserve, and make available significant at-risk digital contents.
Series Presenter: Mary Molinaro, Associate Dean for Library Technologies, University of Kentucky Libraries

4A - Identifying and Selecting Digital Content 
June 2, 2014 
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
This webinar will address the scope of digital content potentially available at an institution, as well as the process for selecting digital content for preservation. The scope of content will include digital content currently in the custody of a cultural heritage institution and digital content that has been or will be created in the future. The process for selecting digital content for preservation may be known by different terms in institutions, e.g., appraisal in archives, selection in libraries, or acquisition in museums, but there are common principles and outcomes that may be applied across all types of institutions.

4B - Storing and Protecting Digital Content 
July 7, 2014 
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM 
This webinar will address best practices in storing digital content and the various aspects of protecting that content. Best practices for storing digital content include maintaining multiple copies of digital objects in at least two locations, with digital objects consisting of files and associated metadata. Protecting digital content is a key responsibility of long term management, and includes everyday concerns such as controlling access and fixity checking, and emergency contingencies such as disaster planning and ensuring business continuity.

4C- Managing and Providing Access to Digital Content 
August 11, 2014 
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM 
This webinar will discuss management of and access to digital content over the long term. Effective management of digital content requires planning, implementation, and sustainability, and includes organizational aspects such as policy development and training, and necessary resources such as designated funding. Long term access to digital content is the purpose of digital preservation. Providing access addresses the concepts, roles, and challenges involved in making digital content accessible over time, not of providing real-time access in the present. This webinar will also include a wrap-up of the digital preservation principles discussed throughout the series, and will encourage participants to identify preliminary steps for digital preservation activities at their home institution.
