New Videos From Archipel Steal the Show by Susan Manus
The digital preservation-related video show, that is. The set of newly released videos from the Belgian project “Archipel” are the latest digital preservation videos to hit the scene. The Archipel project is a recent collaboration by organizations in Belgium, to study digitization and digital preservation of cultural heritage materials.

Even though these videos are basically educational, don’t let that fool you. In the midst of making the point about the importance of digital preservation, they are also quite creative and highly entertaining. And complete with a special recurring motif – the figleaf! Not to mention the accompanying lush and dramatic musical score. As a matter of fact, the videos are so visually interesting you may have to watch them twice in order to absorb the content. (Not at all a hardship, IMHO.)
