The 2020 Digital Directions Training Conference will now take place online, from Monday, October 19, to Wednesday, October 21. Join us for a comprehensive overview of digital preservation, presented by information professionals with deep experience in the preservation of cultural heritage materials. During three half-days of live, interactive, online training, you will learn about good practices and practical strategies for creating and managing digital collections, and you’ll gain confidence in decision-making for the preservation of your digital assets. Topics will include standards and specifications for digitization and digital preservation, metadata, copyright, selection for digitization, special considerations for audiovisual and born-digital materials, digital storage, and working with vendors and collaborative or consortial organizations.

Total registrants will be limited to 125 people to ensure that participants have opportunities to interact with both faculty and attendees. Each livestreamed session is 45-60 minutes, followed by 15-30 minutes of audio/video enabled Q&A. View the Agenda, faculty list, complete logistics, and registration information on the event website.
