The Center for Louisiana Studies is excited to host this workshop on digital preservation on Monday, December 10, 2018, at the Lafayette Science Museum from 8:30 am to 4: 45 pm.

The workshop is geared towards smaller, local and regional institutions, museum, libraries and other organizations with archival holdings, as well as professionals and students, in order to provide a baseline of understanding and methodology across the region. Additionally, it will help support the development of a professional network of information and resource sharing.

The workshop will include presentations by the “Deep South” trainers from the Library of Congress Digital Preservation Outreach and Education program: Gina Costello (LSU), Jeffrey Rubin (Tulane University), Cheylon Woods (Ernest Gaines Center at UL Lafayette), Elizabeth Kelly (Loyola University), Charlene Bonnette (Louisiana State Library), Kent Woynowski (Historic New Orleans Collection), and Zach Tompkins (LA Secretary of State). Each presenter will guide attendees through each step of digital preservation, and after each presentation, attendees will adjourn to the classrooms to put that new knowledge to work with materials supplied from various participating institutions.
