SCAPE Digital Preservation Policy webinar

SCAPE Project

28th May 2014 : 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The SCAPE project is focussed on large scale digital preservation, to be able to manage large scale collections then it is important to work within a policy framework. Developing policy in a new and changing area can be hard and so the SCAPE Policy Representation team have worked on creating a three tier policy framework, a catalogue of policy elements which can be used by organisations as a starting point for creating their own preservation procedure policy. SCAPE has produced automated watch and planning tools which can use machine readable policy to ensure appropriate outcomes and the SCAPE suggested process for this will be outlined.

The webinar will cover the SCAPE three level policy framework, discuss the catalogue and how it might be used and describes how machine readable policy can be derived from the catalogue elements.

Who should attend?
This webinar will be of interest to those responsible for making digital preservation policy, or those who wish to use their existing policy in SCAPE watch and planning tools (SCOUT and Plato) Note use of these tools will not be discussed.

There are twenty-five places available on a first come, first serve basis.

Date: Wednesday 28 May
Time: 14:00 BST / 15:00 CET
Duration: 1 hour
Session Lead: Catherine Jones, Science and Technology Facilities Council &Barbara Sierman, National Library of the Netherlands
