Building on the success of the Preserving Digital Objects With Restricted Resources (Digital POWRR) project, Northern Illinois University will hold five two-day institutes enabling librarians and archivists from small and mid-sized institutions to build skills for curating and preserving digital collections. A total of 150 individuals, each representing a different institution, will attend the workshops. Workshops will be offered free of charge, with financial assistance available to participants with need, and will incorporate hands-on training, case studies, and one-on-one consultation with experts. The project will result in cohorts of similar organizations engaged in digital curation and preservation, as well as facilitate connections between small institutions and local experts in these subjects.
