    A simple and cheap digital preservation workflow

    This workshop will provide the essential knowledge needed to set up a simple digital preservation workflow for those new to digital preservation. Participants will download open-source software tools in advance and be given an opportunity to try out tools during the workshop. This workshop is ideal for small and under-resourced archives and lone arrangers.
