SPRUCE Digital Preservation 'Mashup', London 18-20th September
The JISC funded SPRUCE Project cordially invites you to the second SPRUCE Digital Preservation Mashup, central London, 18-20 September 2012.
SPRUCE is organising a series of free events around the UK that will provide support and technical expertise to address the real digital preservation challenges that institutions face. The best work from event attendees will be awarded funding to develop the activity and embed it within business as usual processes. £60k is available for these awards.
Over 3 days at the SPRUCE Mashup London, a diverse community will come together to discuss, test, code (don't worry non-techies we won't force you to code), plan, and share challenges related to the new types of content entrusted to libraries, archives, and museums to preserve and manage. The focus is around community, communication, and learning from one another for we definitely can't go it alone in the new landscape of digital content. The result will be practical digital preservation tools which meet your specific needs and which are likely to be useful more widely. We'll also work with you to build a compelling business case for your digital preservation work, making it easier for you to secure the funding you need to make your work sustainable.
