Digital Records Management and Preservation
Much of the dialog on and research in digital preservation over the past decade or so has focused, properly, on the difficult technical problems involved in packaging and otherwise managing digital material such that it can survive the passage of time and changing computational environments. But, as the digital library world has increasingly come to realize over the years, technical solutions are only one aspect of the whole solution. In preservation this is particularly well brought out in addressing the problem of records management.
In the Clips and Pointers column of this issue of D-Lib Magazine, links are provided that lead to the Australian government web site and two draft documents on effective digital record keeping and preservation. Government agencies in other countries as well as other public and private organizations are also grappling with these issues, and D-Lib Magazine will point its readers to additional publications and news on these issues as they become available.
