Presentation 2
Accessible Preservation on a Budget: One cost-effective approach to producing and preserving quality digital content
This presentation is designed to demonstrate how smaller institutions with limited resources can still participate in digitization programs without sacrificing either access or preservation. Follow one institution’s story on how they have been able to create a digital collections program from the ground up while working within a limited budget.
Presenter: David Mindel

Presentation 3
Digital Collection Care: Working with Invalid TIFF Files
Fifteen years after a digitization project, the NYPL digital repository team discovered a set of invalid TIFFs. Ingesting the files meant directly editing the bitstream. Before we started changing bytes, we had to decide what an invalid format was, and what our policy was to manage "invalid" files?
