Ex Libris and BCR team up on preservation training

Share this on social media:

Ex Libris and Bibliographical Center for Research (BCR) have signed an agreement to offer libraries, archives, and other information organisations foundation training and consulting services in digital preservation.

The training will include an overview of digital preservation as well as courses on policy and planning for digital preservation, and risk assessment planning and implementation. These courses, available online and in a classroom format, will provide libraries with a foundation for implementing a digital preservation system such as Ex Libris Rosetta. Supplementary consulting services to meet the specific needs of each organisation will be offered as well.

Brenda Bailey-Hainer, CEO and president of BCR, commented, 'Developing policies and plans is key to implementing a successful digital preservation solution. We are pleased to partner with Ex Libris and their customers as they look to assure the long term accessibility to digital collections.'
