Description: The challenges of born digital records are well-known to most archivists by now. For years professional literature, workshops, and trainings have informed us of the complexities and issues around these materials. But what happens when theory meets reality? What kinds of collections are we actually encountering, and what are the real-life tools and procedures that repositories are using?

Speakers: Carol Kussmann, Digital Preservation Analyst, Digital Preservation and Repository Technologies and Lara Friedman-Shedlov, Digital Records Archivist, Archives & Special Collections, University of Minnesota Libraries.

The SOA Educational Programming Committee is partnering with the Midwest Archives Conference Speakers Bureau to offer this great educational opportunity.
