2nd LIBER international workshop on digital curation
“Partnerships in curating European digital resources”
7-8 May 2012
The LIBER Steering Committee for Heritage Collections and Preservation, in collaboration with the Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale in Florence and the National Library of the Netherlands, invites you to attend the second international workshop on digital preservation.
"Do not go at this game alone", was the unmistakable advice given to LIBER libraries at the end of the first LIBER workshop on digital curation in The Hague in 2010. Since then, the euro crisis and budget cuts have only exacerbated the need to seek partnerships in securing long-term access to your digital collections. But with whom can you partner? How does it work? What are the advantages and disadvantages of various forms of partnering? And how much of the responsibility will always be yours, no matter how much of the actual work you outsource to others?
This workshop will provide an overview of the best-known collaborative initiatives: the stakeholders involved, the basic set-ups, the legal foundations, the business models – and help you analyse which alternatives are best suited for your organisation, your type of collection and your national culture. We will deal with organisational issues, legal issues, financial issues and technical issues that will influence your choices. Critical questions will be asked by experts in the field, and there will be plenty of time to ask your own questions.
Lastly, the workshop will showcase a number of best practices.
You will go home with a keen understanding of the types of collaborative practices available which will enable you to start discussing long-term curation policies with your management team.
