Paper: "Extending the Reach of Digital Preservation Practice: a program to teach practitioners in small institutions", Mary Molinaro, University of Kentucky Libraries, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky, USA

Abstract— 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 United States in a scalable way.
