About the Workshop
The Digital Preservation Management Workshops, a series presented since
2003, incorporate community standards and exemplars of good practice to
provide practical guidance for developing effective digital preservation
programs. The workshops were initially developed at Cornell University
beginning in 2003 under the direction of Anne Kenney and Nancy McGovern.
Since 2006, McGovern has continued curricular development and directing the
workshop from ICPSR at the University of Michigan. This has included
development of Special Topic advanced workshops and a Train-the-Trainer
program. Through 2010, the workshop series was developed with funding from
the National Endowment for the Humanities.
