Abstract 

Extending the Reach of Digital Preservation Practice

Many working in small libraries, museums, archives, and historical societies have been actively engaged in creating digital collections, but often these collections are not being digitized to standards, are presented to users via a web page and are not preserved in any meaningful manner. How do the people in these scenarios discover that there is a problem before they lose content and more importantly how do they learn what to do about it? The Library of Congress Digital Preservation Outreach and Education Program (DPOE) is taking a proactive approach to extending digital preservation education across the country in a scalable way.  This presentation will address these issues and describe how DPOE is meeting digital preservation education needs.
