SCAPE Project Training Event
Effective, Evidence-based Preservation Planning
13-14 November
State and University Library, Aarhus, Denmark
Registration is open for the third SCAPE Project training event:
This two-day event will guide delegates through the steps of the SCAPE Preservation Planning and Watch lifecycle. It will begin with an introduction to the SCAPE Planning and Watch ecosystem, its components and how they support the full lifecycle of digital objects.
Delegates will learn about both human-readable and machine-readable policy drivers and will create policy statements.
Following this, delegates will be introduced to a number of tools that have been developed or extended as part of this SCAPE project. These include the content-profiling tool, C3PO, which will enable you to perform deep analysis of your digital content; Scout, a preservation watch system which can detect preservation risks and opportunities through its knowledge base and automatically notify users of new risks and opportunities; and Plato, a decision-making tool that implements a solid preservation planning process and integrates services for content characterisation, preservation action and automatic object comparison.
Learning Outcomes (by the end of the training event the attendees will be able to):
* Understand the SCAPE Planning and Watch lifecycle, and the benefits and opportunities.
* Explain why a policy framework is important in successful preservation planning.
* Evaluate when and how to execute preservation planning.
* Apply preservation policy to a planning scenario.
* Carry out content profiling experiments.
* Analyse content profile results.
* Understand how to monitor your repository and its environment
