Decoding Digital Preservation

January 27th 2016 @ 12:00pm
Hazelbaker Lecture Hall (E159)

Heidi Dowding, Digital Preservation Librarian
Library Technologies

Digital preservation is one of those phrases that means a lot to a few people and a little to a lot of people. It is often confused with digitization (preservation by digital), digital curation (of which preservation is a piece), digital asset management (another variant of digital curation), and so on.  This talk will lay out the unique characteristics of digital preservation, as well as the practical applications. Expect to learn about recent developments in both the field and within the IU Libraries.
