Trust and Digital Preservation

Trust and Digital Preservation, 4th – 5th June — Day 1 By Alexander Kouker

Today I went along to the first installment of a two-day workshop revolving around the idea of the importance of creating trust and authenticity within the domain of archival and preservation practices around digital content information. What follows below is a selective recapture of today’s activities and some relevant resources.

The day started off with an introduction to APARSEN, which is an alliance of institutions in the business of enabling long-term accessibility and usability to digital information and data through a shared and sustainable infrastructure. Consider in particular their knowledge base, which contains resources on technologies and preservation tools. David Giaretta’s half-hour lecture on the difficulties of digital preservation is well worth checking out in this context.
