ANADP II differs in intent and structure from other digital preservation conferences and meetings. Its primary purpose is not to encourage information sharing, but rather to foster and support sustained global networks of influence and action.
The Action Assembly includes four main components: Panel Discussions that intentionally engage the audience in conversation; Action Sessions in which community-based work will result in concrete outcomes; Presentations about the opportunities and challenges in cross-national digital preservation funding support; and Patio Perspectives Sessions in which attendees can identify and develop new alignment projects for future work in the ANADP community.
The three-day program will include the following:
Monday, 18 November 2013
Ferran Mascarell, Ministry of Culture of the Government of Catalonia
Clifford A. Lynch, Coalition of Networked Information
|14:00-15:00||Panel 1: Community Alignment
The Community Alignment panel, chaired by Martin Halbert (Dean of Libraries, University of North Texas), will discuss the topic “What makes a community work?” The panelists will briefly share their experiences in international, community-driven organizations of research and cultural memory institutions. They will discuss the most important factors for successfully building communities that work effectively. The panelists will then share thoughts and recommendations for the action sessions to consider in fostering the health and sustainability of their communities and the advancement of digital preservation through their community-based efforts.

Each Patio Perspective Session Leader will provide an overview of the Alignment Opportunities identified during the Action Assembly and any commitments made by the session’s attendees to carry that work forward in the coming year.
|11:00-12:30||Alignment Exemplars and Current Opportunities for Collaboration
Chaired by Tyler Walters (Dean of University Libraries, Virginia Tech), the panel will discuss and describe existing alignment opportunities that leverage collaborative organizations. They will share their knowledge of current activities within the Research Data Alliance, the SCAPE Project (Scalable Preservation Environments), the International Internet Preservation Consortium, Educopia Institute, and the U.S. National Digital Stewardship Alliance. The panel will also engage attendees in conversations about these and other opportunities as well as perspectives on how these initiatives can assist in aligning national approaches to digital preservation.
