Join MDPN Coordinator, Dr. Chelsea Denault, for a free panel presentation, “Digital Archiving: Preserving Work, Saving Coin,” on February 25 from noon-1pm in association with CultureSource. The presentation will address what digital preservation is, how it differs from other information backups, and how the MDPN plans to offer a path to digital preservation services to organizations of all sizes across Michigan. Other presenters include Brian Wilson, Senior Manager of Archives and Library at The Henry Ford, and Jonah Raduns-Silverstein, Deputy Director of the Detroit Sound Conservancy.
