Preserving Electronic Records in Colleges and Universities workshop, Plattsburgh, New York, 30-31 March 2011

If you live in or can travel to New York's North Country, you might be interested in the Preservation of Electronic Records in Colleges and Universities workshop being offered on at SUNY Plattsburgh. This workshop, which will be held from 9:00 AM-Noon on 30 and 31 March, will focus on:
  • types of records that should be preserved
  • legal and technical issues surrounding electronic records
  • standards and best practices
  • multiple file formats you are likely to encounter
  • tactics for developing productive partnerships within your institution
  • what you need to know about disaster planning
I reviewed a couple of early versions of the workshop slides and presentation materials and attended the workshop when it was first offered in Albany last year, so I can vouch for its usefulness. I can also vouch for my highly capable colleague Denis, who will teach this workshop in Plattsburgh.
