About Digital Preservation

logo-homeContent

Digital encoding has become the dominant way in which we create, shape and exchange information, but this dependence carries many risks.

  • As digital technology advances, hardware and software may become outmoded and information may become inaccessible
  • Other users may be unable to understand or use data
  • Access and use restrictions may make it difficult for others to re-use data
  • The ability to identify the location of data may be lost
  • The current custodian of the data may cease to exist
  • The ones we trust to look after the digital holdings may let us down

Today’s research community must assume responsibility for building a robust data and information infrastructure for the future. Digital preservation is too big an issue for individual institutions or even sectors to address on their own. The answer to these challenges calls for coordinated approaches on both national and international level.
