The Digital POWRR team invites applications for the first of five upcoming in-person, 2.5 day digital preservation training institutes. The first Institute will be held July 24-26, 2023 at the NIU Naperville Conference Center in Naperville, Illinois. Due to the generosity of the National Endowment for the Humanities<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.neh.gov/__;!!DZ3fjg!82y5aD98dje4pN_fGuZxHfMvsUmgvSsSLpGAb8s36I9BoiXLKTJxhZIuFyNBSGkb3fb44SRqsMt59HCbVhDd-3wu2vxVyQ$ >, the Institutes are offered free of charge and travel stipends are available!

An ideal candidate for a POWRR institute fits some of these descriptions:

·         Someone who works directly with collections, including digital materials.

·         Someone who has been exposed to basic digital preservation concepts, but struggles with moving from theory to practice.

·         Someone who represents or serves historically underrepresented populations.

·         Someone who is comfortable with basic technology (navigating a basic computing environment) but would benefit from instruction on more intermediate concepts.

·         Someone employed by an institution unable to provide professional development funding adequate to attend other digital preservation training opportunities.

·         Someone who would benefit from being a part of a small cohort of professionals like themselves, and who will put forth effort into sustaining these professional connections after the end of the Institute.
