On Sept. 9, 2014 the Digital POWRR team will be conducting a free, day-long workshop in San Francisco entitled From Theory to Action: A Pragmatic Approach to Digital Preservation Tools and Strategies. It is a hands-on workshop that deals with the "How" of digital preservation, rather than the "Why." Attendees will practice the accession of a digital collection using a simple, open-source tool, learn about several DP tools and services, and create an institution-specific action plan for making progress towards digital preservation goals.

The workshop is made possible through a National Leadership Grant provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
