(4 February 2015) The Digital Preservation Coalition is offering two fully funded scholarships to attend the upcoming March 2015 instance of ULCC’s intermediate level Digital Preservation Training Programme – The Practice of Digital Preservation at Senate House, University of London, London.
The Digital Preservation Training Programme (DPTP) is designed for all those working in institutional information management who are grappling with fundamental issues of digital preservation. It has recently been redesigned and is now offered as two separate courses: an introductory course and an intermediate course. The two scholarships offered in this call are for the 3-day intermediate level course.
The Practice of Digital Preservation is aimed at those practitioners who are already working in digital preservation and who wish to broaden their working knowledge of the field. It is ideal for practitioners in all sectors who want to know more about applying practices in their day-to-day work. This practitioner course builds on and complements the Introduction to Digital Preservation. Students who attend are expected to be familiar with the OAIS Model, its concepts, and its terminology. It also aims to give students confidence in continuing to maintain their own current awareness afterwards through further reading, future professional development training and continuing to develop their own practical skills through their own continued experience of engaging with digital preservation.
The scholarships are available to DPC members, associates and personal members.
