NCPC 30th Anniversary Celebration & Conference – Call for Proposals

The North Carolina Preservation Consortium is seeking session proposals for its upcoming conference on Monday, November 6, 2023. This year’s conference marks NCPC’s 30th Anniversary, a milestone traditionally celebrated with a gift of pearls. NCPC wants to hear your pearls of wisdom from the preservation field and welcomes proposals that explore the question, “what is the best preservation advice you have ever received, and how did you implement it?”

Proposals will be accepted through Friday, July 21 at 11:59 PM. NCPC will notify presenters if their session has been selected by mid-August 2023. To submit a proposal, please fill out the Conference Session Proposal Form. Thank you!

An Introduction to Digital Preservation

This virtual workshop will focus on Digital Preservation best practices. Instructor Andrea Green, previously the Digital Collections Manager at the State Library of North Carolina, will discuss basic terminology, models and workflows, storage and access, and assessment. Participants will learn helpful tools and resources to assist in digital preservation development and maintenance throughout the talk. The first two hours will be a workshop providing an overview of digital preservation to help people get started on their own projects or navigate current situations. During an optional Q&A / consultation in the third hour, participants will have the opportunity to ask specific questions, share experiences, and talk through more specific concerns or areas of interest.
