On Friday, November 24, PACKED and the Royal Library of Belgium, in collaboration with the Open Preservation Foundation, organise a workshop “Quality Control of PDF Files“. The workshop is intended for digital archivists who are responsible for the long-term preservation of PDF files.

During the workshop you will learn how to gain an insight into the technical properties of PDF files and what you can do to preserve them for future generations. The workshop is conceived as a hands-on session, where participants get started with PDF files from their own collection. The purpose is to determine the durability of your PDF files using the veraPDF Conformance Checker and to create a policy profile for the files in your collection.

The workshop takes place in the Royal Sky Room 2 (6th floor) of the Royal Library in Brussels and will be taught in English. The number of participants is limited to fifteen. Please subscribe to Piet Janssens (piet.janssens@kbr.be) before Friday November 10th.

This workshop has been made possible through the PREFORMA project, funded by the Seventh Framework Program for Research and Innovation of the European Commission.

Op vrijdag 24 november organiseren PACKED en de Koninklijke Bibliotheek van België, in samenwerking met Open Preservation Foundation, een workshop “Kwaliteitscontrole van PDF-bestanden”. De workshop richt zich specifiek op digitale archivarissen die verantwoordelijk zijn voor de preservering van PDF-bestanden.

Het doel is om met behulp van de veraPDF Conformance Checker de duurzaamheid van je PDF-bestanden te bepalen en een bewaarprofiel op te stellen voor de bestanden in jouw collectie.

De workshop gaat door in de Royal Sky Room 2 (6e verdieping) van de Koninklijke Bibliotheek en de voertaal is Engels. Het aantal deelnemers is beperkt tot vijftien. Aanmelden kan tot vrijdag 10 november bij Piet Janssens (piet.janssens@kbr.be).
