Digitization is Different than Digital Preservation: Help Prevent Digital Orphans!

Digitization is Different than Digital Preservation: Help Prevent Digital Orphans! 

The following is a guest post by Kristin Snawder, a 2011 Junior Fellow working with NDIIPP.

“If it’s scanned, then it’s preserved, right?  I mean, it’s in the computer now so that’s all I need to do!”

I’ve heard this response when I ask if something is digitally preserved and it raises concerns.  Lumping scanning together with digital preservation causes confusion and I want to take this opportunity to shine a light on some of the differences between the two.
