December 12th 2017

3:00 PM GMT | 4:00 PM GMT+1 | 10:00 AM EST | 7:00 AM PST | 2:00 AM GMT+11

This webinar is the first in a four part series focused on exploring strategies and digital preservation techniques used by business and corporate archives as they adapt to meet the challenges of digital transformation and evolving electronic record keeping practices and systems.

Featuring a conversation with Valerie Komor, Director of the Associated Press Corporate Archives, this webinar focuses on how she and her team built the business case for a digital preservation system and engaged stakeholders to identify and prioritize information assets for preservation based on value and risk. Valerie will share highlights on their three year journey to establish and sustain a digital archive, and offer insights into how collaboration with records creators and researchers is changing in the digital age.

The mission of the Associated Press (AP) Corporate Archives is to acquire, organize, preserve, and make available to staff and researchers the historically valuable records of the 170 year old global news reporting organization. This stewardship duty applies to corporate, news, and administrative business records as well as to a vast treasure trove of photographs, audio and video collections.
