Facebook Live: Creating a Digital Preservation Policy


Event details

With CCAHA staff and our followers working from home due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we're planning a series of community conversations on a wide range of important subjects. This will include interactive Facebook Live videos on conservation and preservation topics. This week, CCAHA's Manager of Digital Imaging Maggie Downing will talk about what a digital preservation policy is, who it is for, what it looks like, and why it's important. This will be an informal discussion including a number of examples, and everyone's questions are welcome!
