Presented by: Marisa Bruhns, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory

The Council of State Archivists (CoSA) and its State Electronic Records Initiative (SERI) is pleased to feature Marisa Bruhns of the MIT Lincoln Laboratory for this SERI Webinar. This webinar will cover the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Archives' ongoing journey to implement practical solutions to preserve and provide access to digital records. Experience the 5-year evolution from salvaged systems with a motley crew of open-source tools to the burgeoning implementation of our new MINISIS M2A collection management system and Trusted Digital Repository! Discussion will deep-dive into the trenches of digital archiving lessons learned; real policies, procedures, workflows, and tools implemented; and IT and Security challenges faced along the way. This presentation is geared towards smaller organizations with limited staff, budgetary, and technical resources looking for practical solutions, but should also be useful to larger organizations. It assumes a professional familiarity with core digital preservation concepts, best practices, and technology, as well as foundational models and standards like OAIS and PAIMAS.
