Can you do digital preservation with your eyes shut?

If you are attending Archives*Records 2019 in Austin, Texas join us for a panel and workshop session on Sunday August 4th, 2019; 12:00 - 13:15 (Lunch will be provided).
Our session will cover discussions on whether preservation can be done as a "black box" operation without people being in the loop about what is happening.
In this panel session and workshop we will explore to what extent digital preservation can, or should be automated. We will discuss:
  • The positives and negatives of automation in digital preservation
  • When preservation can be automated and where do you need to draw the line
  • How preservation can be automated in the real world when preservation can seem more like a science
  • Can you trust automation?
We will be joined on the panel by Corrinne Collett, Archivist for Records Management and Information Services at The Archives of the Episcopal Church, Annalise Berdini, Digital Archivist at Princeton University and Walker Sampson, Digital Archivist at University of Colorado, Boulder who will discuss their experiences in an interactive discussion with the audience.
Don't forget to fill out the form on the right hand side so we know how many to cater for including any dietary requirements.
Remember to add this event to your sched.
