November 23, 2015

Join us for a talk on Wednesday, December 9 at 2:00 pm in the SML Lecture Hall by Euan Cochrane, Digital Preservation Manager at the Yale University Library.

The preservation department at Yale University Library is in the process of implementing Preservica as the Library’s new digital preservation system. Preservica is going to provide a significant step-up in capability for the library, enabling it to preserve its digital content in a secure and trustworthy system. This talk will provide an overview of its functionality, the implementation timeline, and the evolving policies and decisions related to its use and governance by Yale Library and future tenant users.

Euan Cochrane joined the Yale Library in 2013 when the university identified the need for the dedicated expertise to lead a large-scale digital preservation program. The talk is sponsored by SCOPA and is free and open to the public.
