December 4, 2009 -- Martha Anderson, director of program management for the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program, delivered the keynote address for the October Digital Preservation Management Workshop (external link) in Ann Arbor, Mich. The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research hosted the workshop.

Anderson presented lessons learned (PDF, 3.14MB) from the NDIIPP program and talked about examples of how NDIIPP partners take early action to meet the challenge of digital preservation. Partners strive to work locally and share globally. They build upon existing work and expertise, collaborate in competitive environments and seek simple approaches to address complex issues.

The five-day workshop also included group discussions, individual and group assignments, a virtual field trip and a "Preservation in Action" presentation from Anderson about the Library of Congress web archiving program. Over 25 people attended the Fall workshop, including representatives from Kuwait and Tanzania.

The next (external link) Digital Preservation Management Workshop will be hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology June 13-18, 2010, in Cambridge, Mass.
