COW-a-thon Event 

28th April, 1330 - 1515 (UK)

A recurring request from digital preservation practitioners has been for a community forum in which they can share and exchange experience on how they use tools in combination - in short - pool their knowledge about digital preservation workflows. Following a discussion by one of the groups at the iPRES 2016 workshop: "OSS4Pres 2.0: Building Bridges and Filling Gaps", a lightweight wiki based approach to sharing workflows was established – and the COW (Community Owned Workflows) was born.

Now, following on from our short series of Workflow Webinars, the DPC invites the digital preservation community to share their own workflows by submitting these to the COW during this hackathon style event.
