Joining forces for digital preservation: NCDD merges with Digital Heritage Network

Added on 22 February 2018

From 1st March 2018 the Netherlands Coalition for Digital Preservation (NCDD) and the Digital Heritage Network in the Netherlands will join forces, in order to increase the social value of cultural heritage offered by digital technology.

Focus on digital preservation

Since 2008, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, the National Library of the Netherlands, the National Archives, Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) and the Cultural Coalition for Digital Preservation have collaborated with many other heritage institutions as members of the Netherlands Coalition for Digital Preservation (NCDD). Their goal has always been to share cross-sector knowledge and facilities that maintain access to digital collections in the Netherlands. The NCDD partners have achieved much in this area.

Since 2015, the NCDD has participated in the Dutch Digital Heritage Network, a national, cross-sector collaboration of heritage institutions focusing on the visibility, usability and sustainability of digital heritage. As part of the Network, the NCDD carries out projects under the Sustainable Digital Heritage work package as well as promoting knowledge sharing and networking.

PV2018 call for abstracts deadline reminder - 28th February 2018

Added on 15 February 2018

The PV 2018 Conference welcomes you to its 9th edition, to be held 15th – 17th May 2018 at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Harwell Space Cluster (UK ), hosted by the UK Space Agency and jointly organised by STFC, NCEO and the Satellite Applications Catapult.

For its ninth edition, the conference series moves to UKSA at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory part of the Harwell Space Cluster in the UK to continue addressing prospects in the domain of data preservation, stewardship and value adding of scientific data and research related information.

An end-to-end management approach for the long-term data preservation is key to ensure that there is no loss of information and data. It also entails the access to the archived data – including discovery, metadata, formats and interoperability considerations with the relevant standards – as well as the curation processes aimed at improving the information content and the usability of the archived data. In addition to emergent standards technologies and best practice, we would like to use this conference as an opportunity to explore issues of data management planning and archive appraisal.

Using Blockchain to Create Trust in Digital Archives: Workshop, 8th March, Guildford, Surrey

Added on 1 February 2018

How can we assure the public that a digital record emerging from an archive is identical to that entrusted to it a century ago?

People think of archives as being about the past, but in reality they are about the future. Archives are frequently entrusted with content that cannot be released for decades; so when released, how can we ensure research data served out by a university archive today, is the same data that supported conclusions in a paper published a decade ago?  We need a decentralized, open and transparent model for ensuring the provenance and integrity of digital records.
