Introducing OPF Webinars

The first OPF webinar ‘Understanding the Value of Preservation Data’ by Dr. David Tarrant, will take place on Wednesday 26 September at 15.00 BST / 16.00 CET.

This webinar will demonstrate techniques for ensuring quality and maturity of preservation data.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • List and describe a number of existing sources of open data.
  • Compare the techniques each use to provide data and assess the quality of such data, noting how this links to maturity.
  • Recall the 5-stars of open data and evaluate how each applies to a number of digital preservation case studies.
  • Explain a number of important steps in Data Curation and illustrate how each relates to other techniques for publishing open data.

We plan to hold webinars on a monthly basis, focusing on a range of topics realting to digital preservation and long term access. They will be listed in our events pages ( and announced in our mailing list and via Twitter.

Only OPF members can attend the live webinars and can participate in discussions and ask questions. However, the webinars will be recorded and released at a later date.
