Title

Digital Data Capture for Small and Mid-Sized Institutions

Abstract

While many larger institutions are making headway on digital preservation, medium-sized and smaller-sized institutions have struggled to make similar progress. And yet, readiness concerning digital materials is essential as more hard drives and CDs arrive from donors and old media formats become obsolete. This panel describes the strategies that small and medium-sized institutions are implementing as a result of a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Digital POWRR, or, Preserving (digital) Objects with Restricted Resources, involves five Illinois academic institutions investigating campus-wide preservation of digital objects.
