Preservation

The proceedings of the recent conference on Practical Experiences in Digital Preservation, from 2-4 April 2003 in Kew (United Kingdom), are now available online. There are PowerPoint for most presentations; a few are in pdf format. However, the exciting part is all are available as audio files in wma format. MP3 might have been a better choice, non-proprietary, but placing the talks up is great. Some topics are:
  • Virtual objects as historical evidence
  • Practical Experiences of the Digital Preservation Testbed
  • The role of XML at the UK National Archives
  • The cost to preserve authentic electronic records in perpetuity
