Sechstes Spreeforum Informationsgesellschaft

A Not-at-all Random Walk Through the Digital Preservation Landscape


Am 6. November um 17 Uhr fand im Gebäude des Exzellenzclusters Bild Wissen Gestaltung das sechste Spreeforum statt. Das Thema der Veranstaltung lautete “Digital Preservation”.


Über den Vortrag:
Digital preservation efforts such as Europeana or the Digital Public Library of America have been initiated to preserve our cultural heritage. It is (mostly) understood that we need sustainable, scalable, and business-oriented preservation models for the vast amount of digital content we create today.
In this talk I will provide a motivation for different Web archiving efforts and I will discuss several preservation approaches developed by the Research Library of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. This overview includes Memento, a framework that makes it easy to access the Web of the past, the introduction of Memento for Chrome, a newly developed client implementation, and SiteStory, a transactional archiving solution.
Let’s talk time travel!
