Thanks to our involvement in the Digital Preservation Cluster of the DELOs Network of Excellence on Digital Libraries, we are again able to offer a few limited free registrations for students at the DELOS Summer School on Digital Preservation, to take place in San Miniato, Italy, June 4-10 2006.
Limited number of Participants! To pre-register, send me an e-mail as soon as possible.

The DELOS Summer School on Digital Preservation will take place from June 4-10 2006 in San Miniato, Italy. Preceeding to teh Summer School we will have a preparatory lecture session in Vienna, followed by the Summer School, and a third lecture block after the meeting in Vienna again.

During this six-day summer school, internationally established lecturers each will lead half-day sessions and will be available through the week for further discussion. The course aimes to develop in participants an appreciation of the issues surrounding digital preservation within the context of digital library development and management and to develop their grasp of the core research in the area of digital curation and preservation. Participants should leave with a coherent and practical understanding of activities surrounding digital preservation and, in particular, a developed understanding of selection and appraisal, workflow modelling, metadata definition, ingest process management, and a working knowledge of the issues surrounding audit and certification of digital repositories and the techniques and practices that underlie digital curation.

This summer school is run by the DELOS Digital Preservation Cluster with the support of the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) of the United Kingdom, and ERPANET on behalf of the DELOS Network of Excellence.
