New article about the iPRES 2016 conference: focus on context and digital continuity
A new article by the Digital Curation team published in b.i.t. online (German only) is reporting about current topics and trends of digital long-term preservation, as presented at the iPRES 2016.
The International Conference on Digital Preservation (iPRES) took place in Berne from 3rd to 6th October 2016.
A central theme of the event was the challenge, to preserve data not “only” from a technical, but also contextual point of view. There were also pleas for more proactive action in order to ensure “digital continuity”, instead of simply retrospective long-term archiving.
The report in b.i.t. online gives a rough overview of personal impressions by the authors. For further information, please consider the conference proceedings.
