Preservation of Web Resources project (JISC-PoWR) – Manchester

The JISC-sponsored Preservation of Web Resources project (JISC-PoWR) will be running its third and final workshop in Manchester. The series of workshops is aimed at the UK HE/FE records management and Web management communities.

The workshop, entitled ‘Embedding Web Preservation Strategies Within Your Institution’, will be held from 10.30 am – 4pm on Friday 12th September 2008 at the Flexible Learning Space, University of Manchester.

It is free to attend and open to all members of HE/FE Institutions and related HE and FE agencies although we may need to restrict the numbers per institution if we are over-subscribed.

The aim of the workshop is to gain and share feedback from institutional Web, information and records managers on the proposed JISC-PoWR handbook, to address ways of embedding the proposed recommendations into institutional working practices and to solicit ideas for further work which may be needed.

Further details and the booking form are available from the JISC-PoWR blog:

The booking deadline is Friday 5th September 2008 and places are limited.
