PresQT & All Workshop Resources on OSF

We thank all who participated in the first of two PresQT workshops on May 1-2, 2017 which convened 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.

The PresQT Workshop sessions and talks shared here provide an opportunity to learn from shared experiences, opinions and ideas related to data and software preservation needs. Topics raised in the sessions and talks generated inspiration and discussion that carried over into our panels, our casual coffee break conversations, and will inform our plans for the second scheduled workshop.
