Dear Colleagues,

Educopia Institute and the Digital Preservation Services Collaborative  (APTrust, Chronopolis, CLOCKSS, LYRASIS, MetaArchive, and Texas Digital Library) would like to invite you to register for an upcoming webinar exploring the findings, recommendations, and opportunities illuminated by the IMLS-funded Sustainable Community-Owned Partnerships in Digital Preservation: DPSC Planning Project Final Report.

Click here to join us on 14 June, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm ET, by registering via Eventbrite.

The Digital Preservation Services Collaborative was funded by the IMLS to reaffirm the need for—and to establish a shared vision for—the sustained viability of values-driven, community-supported approaches to distributed digital preservation (DDP). Beyond gaining a better understanding of the current DDP landscape and conditions in organizations, what emerged was that some non-technical requirements across the information management continuum warrant more attention from community-supported digital preservation service providers. Those non-technical requirements are “advocacy-as-a-service,” best deployed at the institutional preservation strategy-forming moment; and “readiness-as-a-service,” providing hands-on assistance to stewardship organizations as they translate their institutional context and collections needs into digital preservation service requirements.

In this webinar, the DPSC asks respected advisors and service users, as well as anyone interested in the future of collaborative digital preservation efforts, to provide their feedback on our findings and help us envision that future. The panel discussion will center around the following questions:

  • Describe the collaborative advocacy you would like to see. How could advocates organize? Who are the targets of this advocacy?

  • What is collective readiness? How can readiness be addressed collectively?

  • What collective funding models help to reduce the impacts of membership fatigue?

  • Describe the vision for the workshop series described in the findings, as well as the resulting common agenda for collective impact in digital preservation

The webinar will be recorded and made available online on the Educopia website,  after the event.
