    • Scholars Portal is putting on a webinar on the topic of digital preservation policy, based on the survey Jess Whyte did of OCUL schools (as presented at OLA 2016). Jess will be speaking to the survey itself, but SP would love a couple of institutions who are or have grappled with preservation policy to speak to their experiences to help provide OCUL context and hopefully foster a conversation. Please contact Sabina Pagotto and Amber Leahey if you are interested in participating. Estimated time of presentation would be 5-10 minutes, so no big deal really.
