Presentations
 
Non-Custodial Digital Preservation for Public Records in Wisconsin
Hannah Wang
Wisconsin Historical Society, United States of America
 
This talk will address two measures taken by the Wisconsin Historical Society to provide management oversight for the digital preservation of electronic records held by state and local agencies, including Digitization Project Guidance and an internal policy for appraising offers of surrogate records.
 
 
Greek to Me: Using Emulation to digitally re-publish the Chora of Metaponto: The Necropoleis
Kathleen Forrest, Josh Conrad, Birch Griesse, Nicole Lumpkins
University of Texas iSchool, United States of America
 
Our research explores the use of emulation as a digital preservation strategy, bringing new life to historical scholarship by making it newly accessible in digital formats. We explore the challenges of working with emulation—technical barriers, intellectual property, and the complexities of re-producing text using fonts in ancient languages.
 
 
What about the Social Space?
Edward Gloor
University of Illinois, United States of America
 
Video games are important cultural landmarks, and the accurate preservation of them will have a meaningful impact on future research. Massively-Multiplayer Online Games pose a new challenge for preservation professionals in that they do not only require preservation of objects. It's also necessary to preserve the Social Space.
 
 
The challenges of validating half a million TIFF files from tape. How hard can it be?
James Mooney, Edith Halvarsson
The University of Oxford, United Kingdom
 
What were the challenges at Oxford when attempting to validate half a million TIFF image files from tape storage? The poster describes the stages that were involved, including handling large volumes of data, scaling JHOVE to maximise processing power, issues with JHOVE XML output, and transcribing to CSV with XSLT.
 
 
Snapshots, Breadcrumbs, and Coercive Documentation: Institutionalizing Digital Preservation Back-up Plans for Student Work
Roxanne Shirazi, Stephen Zweibel
The Graduate Center, City University of New York, United States of America
 
Dissertations and theses with digital components present challenges for both access and preservation. This poster will present our library’s preservation workflow for student works, one that attends to the digital files while integrating what we might call “coercive documentation” into the accompanying manuscript text.
 
 
The digital librarian: the liaison between digital collections and digital preservation
Marina Georgieva
UNLV Libraries
 
It’s common misconception digital librarians are involved only in digitizing historic materials. In fact managing digital projects is only their visible role. Once it’s over, librarians put on their invisibility cloaks and embrace their new role of information architects directly engaged in the digital preservation process of archiving master files.
 
 
Unconvential Tactics for Distributed Digital Preservation
Nathan Tallman
Penn State University, United States of America
 
As our collective cultural heritage digital content increases into the petabytes and beyond, our current practices and strategies for digital preservation may be unsustainable. The open source InterPlanetary File System from Protocol Labs, together with blockchain and torrents may be the future. More Product Less Process for Digital Preservation.
 
 
Search Results: 0 — The Unseen Cost of Inaccurate Data and Subpar Solutions
Mark Ian Anderson, Farica Chang
Anderson Archival, United States of America
 
What sound does a digital collection make if it’s preserved without functionality? The voices of history don’t resonate when users access a poor interface with inaccurate search results. Seeking low-budget solutions to make collections available quickly does more harm than good due to poorly-developed software and inaccurate OCR.
