The next Digital Preservation Training Programme (DPTP) has been confirmed for 18th-20th May 2009, at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), London.
The DPTP is a modular training programme, aimed at multiple levels of attendee and built around themed sessions that have been developed to assist in designing and implementing an approach to preservation that will work for your institution. The course uses a pedagogical approach to training and involves group work and interaction.
The cost is £650 and does not include accommodation but we can recommend hotels in the vicinity for you.
Details of this event and information about booking are available on the DPTP website.
If you have any questions regarding the DPTP, please contact us at dptp-
Please book early to avoid disappointment as we have limited spaces due to the nature of the course.
Just to prove we can do it, here are the slides from Rory McNicholl’s case study of developing a specialist multimedia repository using Eprints, presented at DPTP in October 2008, and now available on Slideshare.
