LYRASIS and the Northeast Document Conservation Center collaborated on a grant to develop new ways to support institutions in their digital preservation efforts. The project team developed and tested a peer assessment handbook and workshops, guide for preservation assessors, and other resources to support institutions in their digital preservation efforts. In this webinar presenters will share lessons learned from the project, and introduce attendees to the freely available resources that can be used to plan for digital preservation at their institutions.
