DELOS Summer School 2006

19 april 2006

The Summer School will be held from 4th-10th June 2006. The closing date for registration is 1 May 2006. Participation in the School will assist participants in understanding how to address digital preservation challenges in the context of the digital library. The workshop will provide a networking opportunity for participants to meet with other students and researchers, international experts, and practitioners across disciplinary and national boundaries.

Workshop Format
During this five-day summer school, internationally established lecturers will each lead half-day sessions and most will be available through the week for further discussion. The course builds on cutting edge research being conducted by the lecturers. By the end of the course, participants will have:

  • gained an appreciation of the issues surrounding digital preservation within the context of digital library development and management;
  • developed a grasp of the core research in the area of digital curation and preservation; developed a coherent and practical understanding of activities surrounding digital preservation;
  • gained experience with issues surrounding utility analysis, metadata definition, and ingest process management;
  • acquired an appreciation of the different approaches to selecting and appraising potential digital acquisitions;
  • a working knowledge of the issues surrounding audit and certification of digital repositories;
  • a working knowledge of the techniques and practices that underlie digital curation; and
  • considered how digital curation and preservation requirements can be integrated into approaches to digital library development.
