Digital Preservation in Libraries

Jeremy Myntti, Head of Digital Library Services, University of Utah Library, U.S.A.

Libraries have been preserving intellectual content for many centuries. With the proliferation of digital data in recent decades, libraries need to explore strategies for digital preservation to ensure that this new type of content is preserved for the future. This talk will focus on the history and development of digital preservation practices in libraries, including insights into the basic concepts important in the field of digital preservation. A case study will be shared showing how one academic library implemented these practices into its own digital project workflows to preserve over 20 years of digitized special collections.
