Safeguarding Our Digital Memory: New approaches to preservation, trust, decision making, and collaboration

The National Archives (UK) is exploring the creation of a new evidence base for Digital Preservation Risk. 

An evidence based risk model is a fundamental tool in building inclusive digital archival practice for the future, and The National Archives team proposes a new approach to trust, offering a “bottom-up” data driven alternative to the familiar standards-based approaches, which cannot readily accommodate diverse contexts and different priorities.

This webinar will provide an overview of the National Archives' work in this area, presenting a framework for describing and explaining a complex and interdependent map of risk events, risk management actions and impact on preservation outcomes. The work will allow the comparison and prioritization of different types of threats to the digital archive with potential impact in different areas. 

Speakers

  • Sonia Ranade, Head of Digital Archiving at The National Archives, UK
  • Alec Mulinder, Head of Digital Risk and Standards at The National Archives, UK

What's next?

The digital preservation community has many parts; those who create data, the curators who are charged with looking after our digital legacy, solution providers who support the preservation process and those who consume the digital information successfully and continuously preserved. These groups cannot operate independently and alone, each relies on the others to do their bit, to enable the sustained and immediate access to digital information we have all come to expect.

An extension of the DPC Member’s ‘Connecting the Bits’ feedback process which will take place over the preceding months, and this accompanying webinar series, the Digital Preservation Futures: Community Forum 2019 is a half-day event which will provide a neutral forum to summarise the key challenges anticipated by members, before inviting speakers from our DPC Supporters to collaborate and develop new ideas.

Keep Going Pin BadgeI’ve got a lot of mileage on this blog from writing about our Inclusion and Diversity policy, from the point we decided to create one, to its publication, but this time I’m going to talk about one of the more personal reasons why it was important to me. This week in the UK is Mental Health Awareness Week and I didn’t want it to pass without recognising why it is important and why we need to talk more openly about mental health. Discussion of mental health is still too often taboo and those who suffer from issues stigmatised.  So, when I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression just over two years ago, I decided that I would never shy away from sharing my own experience.

Last updated on 17 May 2019

Last week I was happy to be able to tune into the Jisc sponsored DPC briefing day on Software Preservation ‘Insert Coin to Continue: A briefing day on software preservation’.


Did you know that DPC briefing days are recorded and available for DPC members to watch live? This is quite a task, especially when working with a range of different venues, but so important for our international members, and those institutions that do not have a large budget that can be spent on travel.
