Paper Awards Sponsor: Digital Preservation Management Workshops

The Digital Preservation Management Workshops incorporate community standards and exemplars of good practice to provide practical guidance for developing effective and sustainable digital preservation programs. At the center of the DPM’s core curriculum is the organizational maturity model, as elaborated in the five stages and the three-legged stool.  This expanded program is based on the workshop curriculum initially developed and hosted at Cornell University (2003-2006), hosted at ICPSR (2007-2012), and by MIT Libraries since 2012. The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) supported the DPM workshops through four grants awarded since 2002.
