A Digital Preservation Respnose to Technological Change

Presenter 1
Nancy McGovern

Digital curation ensures that digital content will remain accessible and meaningful to users over time.  To achieve this objective, digital preservation strategies must continually evolve as information technology evolves.  Responding effectively to new technologies requires the development of new skills, knowledge, tools, and perspectives.  The digital preservation community has largely lacked access to information about technology developments presented in understandable and meaningful ways.  Developing the means for the digital preservation community to continually respond to evolving technology would establish the educational and informational foundation for sustained digital preservation research and development. This paper considers the needs of the digital preservation community in responding to technology, the scope of interest in technology developments for digital preservation, the means for prioritizing responses to technological change as it occurs based on digital preservation requirements, and the range of possible responses to technology by the digital preservation community.
