From Howard Barrie, IT Project Manager, Library of Congress
Washington, DC How prepared is your organization to provide long-term, durable access to its mission-critical digital content? What skills and experience do staff need to address the digital preservation needs of their organization?
The Library of Congress Digital Preservation Outreach and Education (DPOE) Program is conducting a survey designed to capture the digital preservation continuing education, professional development, and training needs of your organization. The Library will in turn use this information to assist with the further development and/or refinement of its digital preservation educational programs and initiatives. Any organization in the United States and territories engaged in the preservation of digital content is invited to complete the survey through close of business on Friday, September 5, 2014. The survey is available from https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014DPOESurvey
The survey addresses basic questions about your organization, staff size and responsibilities, collection items, preferred training content and delivery options, and professional development planning. The results will remain confidential. To read more about the survey and the DPOE Program, read the following blog post from The Signal, http://blogs.loc.gov/digitalpreservation/2014/07/muster-in-training-needs-assessment-from-dpoe/
