Digital Preservation Matters: The M Word: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Digital Preservation Matters: The M Word: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly | Digital dark age | Scoop.it
The M Word: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly. Robert H. McDonald and Juliet L. Hardesty. Educause Review. January 11, 2016. Metadata is a part of all aspects of the research process. "The expectations are that metadata will be clean and understandable, secure and accessible when appropriate, and easily shareable." In reality this doesn’t happen naturally or without "concerted effort and cooperation" in all areas of policy, design, and practice. Metadata created by hand can be problematic; the academic research librarians work with metadata to "ensure good storage, maintainability, shareability, and most importantly, accessibility." Libraries are often the right agency to serve as a neutral mediator for collaborations among researchers. New directions in the research process are "creating new roles and opportunities for libraries to help in preserving, managing, publishing, and accessing data." Digital Preservation Matters.

Digital preservation forum Thursday at library

Digital preservation forum Thursday at library | Digital dark age | Scoop.it
SOUTH BEND — Do you want to learn how to save photos and other historical documents in digital files and migrate them to new technology when it becomes available? There will be an open forum on digital preservation from 1 to 4 p.m. March 24 at the St. Joseph County Public Library, 304 S. Main St. The forum, which is free and open to the public, will be in the Colfax Auditorium on the library's lower level. Digital files — both personal archives and those owned by businesses and other organizations — may become inaccessible over time unless they are managed and moved to new technology as needed. Even content that lives on a website or social media platform is at risk. Planning is necessary so that content created today is accessible to researchers of the future. Digital preservation includes policies, strategies and actions to ensure long-term access to content that is created in digital form or converted to digital form. Any individual or organization that has digitized photos, scrapbooks or documents will benefit from learning about creating a preservation strategy. The forum is hosted by the library's Local & Family History Services Department, and sponsored by the Indiana State Library and Indiana State University's Cunningham Memorial Library. Those planning to attend are asked to register in advance at: goo.gl/bDLpdP. For more information, contact Connie Rendfeld at crendfeld@library.in.gov or Joe Sipocz at j.sipocz@sjcpl.org.

Eternal 5D data storage could record the history of humankind | University of Southampton

Eternal 5D data storage could record the history of humankind | University of Southampton | Digital dark age | Scoop.it
Eternal 5D data storage could record the history of humankind Published: 18 February 2016 Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a major step forward in the development of digital data storage that is capable of surviving for billions of years. Using nanostructured glass, scientists from the University’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) have developed the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional (5D) digital data by femtosecond laser writing. The storage allows unprecedented properties including 360 TB/disc data capacity, thermal stability up to 1,000°C and virtually unlimited lifetime at room temperature (13.8 billion years at 190°C ) opening a new era of eternal data archiving. As a very stable and safe form of portable memory, the technology could be highly useful for organisations with big archives, such as national archives, museums and libraries, to preserve their information and records. The technology was first experimentally demonstrated in 2013 when a 300 kb digital copy of a text file was successfully recorded in 5D. Now, major documents from human history such as Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Newton’s Opticks, Magna Carta and Kings James Bible, have been saved as digital copies that could survive the human race. A copy of the UDHR encoded to 5D data storage was recently presented to UNESCO by the ORC at the International Year of Light (IYL) closing ceremony in Mexico.
