Backing Up and Moving Forward: Practical
Preservation for Your Institution’s Digital Assets

Friday, June 20th, 2014
12:30 p.m.-2:00 p.m.
CDLC Offices, 28 Essex Street, Albany

Presented by
Matthew Shepherd, Digital Archive Program Assistant at New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation
and Volunteer Digital Collections Assistant at Rensselaer County Historical Society 

A program offered by the Documentary Heritage Program (DHP)

Digital records can be more fragile and difficult to preserve than those on paper. This program will provide an introduction to the threats to digital records and steps participants can take to preserve those records. The information provided in this workshop can be applied to personal, institutional and archival digital records, such as email, scanned images, spreadsheets, Word documents, and digital photographs.

For participants who do not yet have a digital preservation plan, this presentation will help them begin to draw one up. For those who do have a plan, it will help them evaluate that plan.

During this Lunch-And-Learn session, presenter Matthew Shepherd will present an overview, with ample time for discussion.

There is no cost for the program, which is open to all. 

Attendees should bring a lunch. Beverages and dessert will be provided.

Registration is required by Tuesday, June 17th.

Due to a limited number of seats, if you register and are unable to attend, please contact Susan D'Entremont at


This program is sponsored by the Capital District Library Council and supported in part by Documentary Heritage Program (DHP) funds provided by the New York State Archives, State Education Department.
