The nestor project has identified an extensive necessity for
training and education in digital long term preservation. For this reason nestor
is in the process of developing a concept for training, education and instruction
in the field of digital preservation together with other existing institutions
(library, archives and museum) that offer professional training.
There will be different events to support the training and education needs.
These training events have started with the
School 2007 and are continued with workshops and seminars. These ongoing series
of events is intended to serve the needs of different communities.
Another building block of the nestor efforts in comprehensive education and
training offers is the
"nestor Handbook – An Encyclopaedia in digital Preservation"
which is intended as a living document which is revised often.
A further step will be the development of e-learning modules on digital preservation.
Unfortunately, the nestor qualification offers will be prepared mostly in German
language. On the other hand nestor cooperates with international partners in the
field of education and training and is willing to contribute to joint international
