& Meeting ID: 534 479 296 (Breakout Room 202)

The first of two PresQT workshops convenes user communities and tool providers engaged in data and software preservation to assess needs, look at the successful tools of today, and brainstorm about the data and software preservation tools of the future. What do your users and systems need most to enable better software and data preservation? Better data quality?

Workshop sessions and talks provide an opportunity to share your experiences, opinions or ideas related to data and software preservation needs. Topics raised in the sessions and talks will generate inspiration and discussion that carries over into our panels and our casual coffee break conversations. We are looking forward to the workshop and hope you can participate in person or virtually.
