While many of the traditional resources found in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions--books, photographs, objects--can survive for years with no intervention, digital content is much more fragile. Managing it requires ongoing care and preservation activities to ensure continued access far into the future. Join Carol Kussmann (University of Minnesota Libraries) and Sara Ring (Minitex) as they present this two-part virtual course between April 27th - May 11th.
