Digital Print Preservation: Education and Training for Cultural Heritage Professionals

Nine workshops to train approximately 450 cultural heritage professionals in the identification, handling, and care of digital prints held in humanities collections.

Image Permanence Institute at Rochester Institute of Technology is seeking an NEH Preservation and Access Education and Training grant to educate and train cultural heritage professionals in the humanities on the proper identification and long-term care of modern digitally-printed materials. This project will have a wide and substantial impact on the field. Hundreds of attendees will benefit from a program of nine workshops offered over three days, along with short sessions at each location that will allow additional attendees a half-day overview covering foundational knowledge on digital print processes and materials, a new descriptive language to assure accurate communication, and the basics of best care for these objects. The experience will be groundbreaking for attendees. Most have little or no experience in this area and this will be the first educational experience on the topic they have ever received.
