The Digital POWRR Project (Preserving digital Objects with Restricted Resources) will continue the POWRR workshops for two years.
Project team members realized that many information professionals feel overwhelmed by the scope of the digital preservation problem, which prevents them from implementing digital preservation activities. They found that digital preservation is best thought of as an incremental, ongoing, and ever-shifting set of actions, reactions, workflows, and policies. Digital preservation activities can be started by taking small steps to prioritize and triage digital collections, while working to build awareness and advocate for resources.
Some of the resources on the site include:
