Welcome to Digital Preservation INST 784

You have found your way to the course site Information Studies 784, Digital Preservation, a graduate seminar at the University of Maryland. The course meets this fall in College Park, Maryland.

The course syllabus is available here. This course is built around this public course blog where we share and constructively comment on the work of our fellow learners.

Along with engaging with course readings, each student in this course works as a digital preservation consultant for a small cultural heritage organization. So posts to this blog will explore both thematic issues in digital preservation and report outs on attempts to apply what we are learning to help a small cultural heritage organization develop it’s approach to digital preservation.

The best way to get ahold of me, the instructor, is email. You can reach me at trevor dot john owens at gmail dot com.
