“Out of Many, One”: Creating a UC-Wide Descriptive Standard for Born-Digital Archival Material
Shira Peltzman(1), Kate Tasker(2), Annalise Berdini(3), Charlie Macquarie(4)
1: UCLA Library, United States of America; 2: Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley, United States of America; 3: University of California, San Diego, United States of America; 4: University of California, San Francisco, United States of America
Currently there's no widely accepted descriptive standard for born-digital material, and institutional practices for creating finding aids for this material differ substantially. This presentation will address an effort to standardize descriptive practices throughout the UCs in order to improve the consistency and quality of finding aids on a system-wide basis.
Footprints in the Sand: The Challenges Posed by Born-Digital Content
Heidi Winkler, Matthew McEniry, Camille Thomas
Texas Tech University, United States of America
This presentation will explore how federal institutions are preparing to handle preserving born-digital archival content when faced with embargoes, hardware obsolescence, and the massive amount of potential data. The presenters will also discuss how smaller universities are handling the same digital preservation and curation challenges endured by federal entities.
In Case of Rapture, Can I Have Your Data?
Micah Beck, Terry Moore, Elaine Wenderholm
University of Tennessee, United States of America
Every digital preservation strategy has some floor on environmental assumptions below which it will fail. This floor is has economic, political, psychological and metaphysical implications. Do we preserve the writings of terrorists? Is digital preservation relevant after a nuclear war? The Rapture? We argue the necessity of lowering the floor!
