Digital Preservation Essentials

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Digital Preservation Essentials is part of the series Trends in Archives Practice. It includes two modules by Erin O'Meara and Kate Stratton:

* Module 12: Preserving Digital Objects: Explores concepts of digital preservation in the archival context, focusing on standards and metadata required to make digital objects accessible and understandable over time.

* Module 13: Digital Preservation Storage: Provides an introduction to digital storage best practices for long-term preservation, including terminology, hardware, and configurations.

As University of Illinois Preservation Librarian Kyle R. Rimkus notes in the introduction, "The successful archivist needs a grounding in the fundamental concepts of digital preservation, a command of its key terminology and practices, and an ability to build effective programs and practices. These modules provide an excellent point of entry."
