Julia Brungs:

 

"Past issues of IPN now available

IFLA is very happy to announce that all remaining past issues of the International Preservation News (IPN) have been digitised by the Preservation and Conservation Centre at the Library of Congress. IFLA would like to thank the Library of Congress for digitising these early editions of IPN and making them available to IFLA. The IPN archive of over 60 past issues is now complete and freely available online. We encourage everyone to re-discover these past issues of IPN, an important series that was published by IFLA for over 25 years with regular contributions from PAC Regional Centres. IPN ceased publication in December 2013. The IFLA Journal is picking up the mandate of IPN and will publish an issue dedicated to Cultural Heritage in its 3rd volume of 2015."

'Bit rot' could turn the Internet into an accidental Library of Alexandria - Death and Taxes

'Bit rot' could turn the Internet into an accidental Library of Alexandria - Death and Taxes | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
'There seems to be a notion among mid-savvy digital technology users that everything that goes onto the Internet will be preserved there, indelibly, until aliens come and decipher the BuzzFeed quizzes of our extinct race. Among the many reasons why this won’t be the case is this kind of surprising one: the bits that make up our digital heritage could “rot.”

Obsolence of formats and digitised content on the Internet as Archive.
