Webinar: Innovative Solutions for Dealing with Born-digital Content in Obsolete Formats

Attend OCLC’s Innovative Solutions for Dealing with Born-digital Content in Obsolete Formats webinar on Monday, 20 October 2014 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT to learn about various options for transferring born-digital content from antiquated media into a form that can be more easily managed.
Webinar speakers will address a variety of issues and scenarios such as outsourcing to a computer history museum, a commercial service, or another archives; transferring from outmoded tapes and email systems; providing services within a consortium; and good-enough in-house solutions. This is a reprise of a successful lightning round session at SAA in August.
