Workshop 5: Preservation and Digitization Planning for Library Collections

The workshop will address the planning of physical and digital preservation activities and will focus on two main topics: (1) project planning, prioritization of activities and workflow, and how to find low-cost solutions for better preserving manuscript collections; (2) project planning for fundraising and providing some basic hints for outlining preservation and digitization project proposals.

Participants will be actively involved in an interactive session: through preparation of a case study, attendees will have the opportunity to exchange proposals and ideas on the above mentioned topic and get feedback from the workshop leader.
