The Novice to Know-How learning pathway is an online, self-directed training course offered by the Digital Preservation Coalition. It aims to provide beginners with the skills required to develop and implement simple digital preservation workflows within their organisation.

It starts with a broad introduction to digital preservation issues and describes the steps that can be taken to address these. It then delves into potential workflows in more detail, examining the issues to consider, steps to take, and technological solutions that can deployed. An emphasis is placed on free, easy-to-use solutions, and includes a number of tool demos. Course content is provided as mix of video, text, and quizzes.
