Dr. Trevor Owens believes that ensuring long-term access to digital information is not straightforward; it is a complex issue with a significant ethical dimension. Owens will provide you with both some theoretical considerations and real-life examples and will help in establishing your own more deliberate and intentional approach to digital preservation.

At present Owens serves as the Director of Digital Services at the Library of Congress. With nearly 100 employees, Digital Services is responsible for the Library of Congress digital collections, digitization, discovery and metadata management services. This includes internationally recognized web archiving and crowdsourcing programs.
Owens is the author of three books, the most recent of which, The Theory and Craft of Digital Preservation, was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2018 and has won outstanding publication awards from both the American Library Association and the Society of American Archivists.
