Class Spotlight:

Making the Business Case for a Digital Preservation Program


August 18, 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET


Does your institution have unique digital objects, but lack a long-term program for digital preservation? Data stored outside of a preservation-specific environment is often unmonitored, misplaced, or poorly tracked, all of which leaves it at a high risk of loss. A well-timed and carefully written business case can help you advocate for the funding needed to implement sustainable digital preservation at your institution.

This class will cover the steps to creating a persuasive business case for a digital preservation program. We will discuss creating a business case to persuade colleagues, administrators, a board, or others that digital preservation is important and should be prioritized over other competing priorities. Worksheets will be provided to help attendees take what they have learned and develop a business case for expanding digital preservation at their organization.

This class will not cover digital preservation technologies or program components. A basic understanding of digital preservation concepts and terms is necessary for full participation in this class.
