Preservation programs in libraries have always been
concerned with more than repairing paper and mending books. However, in
the past decade, there has been an exponential increase in the number of
digital materials, and all these materials come with preservation needs.
Jamie Bradway, NCSU Libraries' Preservation Librarian, will discuss the
components of a well rounded preservation program in an academic library,
how preservation supports the libraries' mission, and the practical
implications of evolving to support digital initiatives.
Rieger, Oya Y. Preservation in the Age of Large-Scale Digitization: A
White Paper, September 2007.
Increasingly, materials with historic importance to
Universities are being created in electronic formats, and historical
materials are being digitized for preservation or presentation purposes.
Attempting to meet the unique needs presented by these practices,
libraries and archives are developing digital repositories. Russell
Koonts, Director and Archivist at the Duke Medical Center Archive will
lead a tour of two of the more popular repository architectures, DSpace
and Fedora, and will discuss pros and cons of each application.
