accessing digital content? Are you looking for information, guidance or tools 
that make it possible to manage digital content for the long-term?
‘Digital Preservation – The Planets Way’ is a series of five three-day events 
across Europe. Each event considers the action that needs to be taken, explains 
the issues involved and introduces the Planets suite of tools and services. 
Delegates will carry out practical experiments on a sample collection to see 
how they may be able to use the technology in their institution, discuss 
preservation issues with the experts and developers of the Planets tools and 
share their experiences with colleagues in other institutions. At the event in 
Sofia, there is a special focus on the work of the Bulgarian Academy of 
Sciences and Open Society Archives. Planets and the Central European Initiative 
will host the second event at the Arena di Serdica hotel, Sofia, Bulgaria on
