Preservation Synthesis

There will be a one-day pre-conference CURATEcamp at this year's iPRES 2012 conference in Toronto. Registration is open now! & Space is limited.

The Camp will be facilitated by Mark Jordan, Head of Library Systems at the W.A.C. Bennett Libray at Simon Fraser University, and Courtney C. Mumma, systems analyst and product manager for the Archivematica project with Artefactual Systems, Inc.

Lunch will be included so we don't lose any momentum. You will have an opportunity to let us know of any dietary limitations on the registration form.

For this intense, one-day event, we would like to focus on Preservation Synthesis. We know there is no single, standalone solution for a complete digital curation system. Solving the digital preservation puzzle means integrating systems and services for a total curation solution.

At this CurateCamp, let's consider answers to the question "How many systems and services does it take to screw in the curation lighbulb?" Deploying curation strategies and tools of a variety of sizes, from vertical preservation applications to the smallest microservices, poses both challenges and opportunities. Join us for a day-long CURATECamp where participants will share their experiences and plans for achieving fully integrated digital curation.

  • WHEN: Tuesday, Oct 2, 2012 (9am - 5pm)
  • WHERE: University of Toronto Chestnut Conference Centre (Room number information will be updated closer to the event.)
  • COST: $40

Space is limited to 40 registrants, so reserve your spot while you can.
