Digital Preservation Workshop Module 3: Preparing for Submission

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

Module 3 of The Digital Preservation Network's Digital Preservation Workflow Workshop Curriculum focuses on preparing content for submission to a long-term storage service, whether in-house or external to the organization. It will emphasize requisite tasks such as understanding and conforming to submission requirements, local file management prior to submission, and tracking asset status. This module will explore common challenges encountered during this stage in the workflow, such as determining how and when to capture metadata, deciding what is “good enough” to submit, dealing with different content sources (e.g., born-digital vs. digitized), and work through ways of resolving these. A case study will be used to provide participants with experience creating a plan for this stage. A hands-on exercise creating a preservation package according to the specifications of a long-term storage service will expose participants to common tools and approaches for compliance with requirements. It will conclude with a discussion of how the processes reviewed during this module can be implemented in a program that will support all organizational content regardless of type, source, or owner.
