2016 Conference on Preservation Excellence Session 2B

The Art of Cooperation

All we need here is a little cooperation. Sounds an awful lot like “just get along” — but how does the reality of our adversarial system align with a need to cooperate during preservation and discovery. This session will explore successful tools and techniques for
fostering collaboration to better negotiate a reasonable scope of discovery and drive down costs. This session will also explore how proportionality does (or not) apply to preservation, and the role of cooperation amongst stakeholders and adversaries.
