DELOS Summer School on Preservation 2006
Centro Studi "I Cappuccini", San Miniato (IT)

4th-10th June, 2006

The DELOS Network of Excellence is pleased to announce its summer school
programme on 'Digital Preservation in Digital Libraries: Emerging
Approaches'. The DELOS Network of Excellence is a four-year project
funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme
to synergize and foster technology for the next-generation of Digital
Libraries (www.delos.info). The school is sponsored by:

Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli (Milan)

Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale (Florence).

Participation in the School will assist participants in understanding
how to address digital preservation challenges in the context of the
digital library. The workshop will provide a networking opportunity for
participants to meet with other students and researchers, international
experts, and practitioners across disciplinary and national boundaries.


Workshop Format
During this five-day summer school, internationally established
lecturers will each lead half-day sessions and most will be available
through the week for further discussion. The course builds on cutting
edge research being conducted by the lecturers. By the end of the
course, participants will have:

  * gained an appreciation of the issues surrounding digital
    preservation within the context of digital library development and
    management;
  * developed a grasp of the core research in the area of digital
    curation and preservation; developed a coherent and practical
    understanding of activities surrounding digital preservation;
  * gained experience with issues surrounding utility analysis,
    metadata definition, and ingest process management;
  * acquired an appreciation of the different approaches to selecting
    and appraising potential digital acquisitions;
  * a working knowledge of the issues surrounding audit and
    certification of digital repositories;
  * a working knowledge of the techniques and practices that underlie
    digital curation; and
  * considered how digital curation and preservation requirements can
    be integrated into approaches to digital library development.
