About the Workshop

The Digital Preservation Management workshop was originally developed at Cornell University Library by Anne R Kenney and Nancy Y McGovern and was hosted at Cornell from 2003-2006. Since 2006, Nancy McGovern has continued curricular development and directing the workshop from ICPSR at the University of Michigan.  The workshop series has been developed with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.  This is the final scheduled workshop in this series funded by the NEH.  The DPM workshop team intends to offer a five-day workshop in Spring 2011 – location to be determined.
