Presentation 1
What Works and What Doesn’t? Developing Guidelines for Incoming Digital Content
The complex challenges presented by born-digital materials can be a difficult puzzle. To identify what works and what doesn’t in the areas of intake, selection, processing and access, we performed a survey in 2016. We will share our findings and ask participants to share their own experiences.
Presenters: Jody DeRidder, Alissa Helms

Presentation 2
Beyond Floppy Disks — Collecting Digital Content For Libraries and Archives Today
AVPreserve, working with the University of Kentucky Libraries’ Louie B. Nunn Center, built a tool for the acquisition of contemporary digital content. This demonstration will highlight the requirements, use, and output of a free, open-source tool institutions are beginning to use to acquire files from a variety of born-digital sources.
Presenter: Bertram Lyons

Presentation 3
