Is There Such A Thing as Digital Preservation?

Is There Such A Thing as Digital Preservation? by Leslie Johnston

I am frequently asked about the difference between “traditional” preservation and digital preservation. My honest answer is that there are very few distinguishable differences.

Preservation activities are never traditional – there is constant innovation in preservation techniques. Digital preservation is in many ways still developing its tools and techniques, but physical preservation is also evolving.

All preservation activities are about actions and documentation of actions taken on collections.
