Building our skills 

The NSLA DPOE Class of 2015, ready to go forth and train in their libraries.

In early June, 24 representatives from NSLA libraries met at the State Library of New South Wales to participate in the Library of Congress’s Digital Outreach and Education Program (DPOE), a train-the-trainer workshop in the principles and practices of preserving digital materials.

Instigated by the Digital Skills project, the four-day intensive workshop produced six modules which participants will use to present training, initially in their own organisations. This 'baseline' training will result in a common vocabulary around digital preservation and digital collecting across NSLA libraries, and a shared understanding of the standards that underpin the framework.

The workshop was led by three experienced DPOE instructors from the US: Mary Molinaro, Director of the Research Data Center at University of Kentucky Libraries, Jacob Nadal, Executive Director of The Research Collections and Preservation Consortium, and Amy Rudersdorf, Assistant Director for Content for the Digital Public Library of America.
