About the Webinar
Information resources are increasingly born digital and may never have a print counterpart. Many older resources are being digitized, with the digital resource now the primary version. But digital resources depend on technology and technology changes can render a resource in accessible. To ensure digital information is sustainable a preservation plan must be developed and implemented. Such a plan needs to address many different issues including file formats, metadata, storage media, and compatible software and hardware. Libraries were traditionally the preservers of much of the world’s published knowledge, but with digital resources often being licensed, not owned, even the responsibility for preservation is no longer clear.
This webinar will share the experiences of several organizations in developing a process for ensuring the preservation of digital textual resources.
