How can we preserve for the future? Technology has so changed our world that most of what we now create begins life in a digital format The artifacts that tell the stories of our lives reside on personalIMMAGINE computers or web sites, in emails or on digital photo and film cards Risk of loss should motivate preservation IMMAGINE
Backups versus Digital Preservation Why do we differentiate backups from digital preservation program? “disaster recovery strategies and backup systems are NOT sufficient to ensure survival and access to authenticIMMAGINE digital resources over time. A backup is short-term data recovery solution following loss or corruption and is fundamentally different to an electronic preservation archive” Joint Information Systems Committee - 2006 Backing up data is NOT a comprehensive solution to the problem of preserving information over time
Backups versus Digital Preservation What are the goals of thinking hundred’s of years ahead? Digital preservation:IMMAGINE Today’s sholarly content… secured for tomorrow A true digital preservation program will require multi-institutional collaboration at international and national level It also requires the creation and maintenance of preservation policies that guide long-term curation of digital collections Finally, some significant investment is needed, too

A final word from one of our sponsors…“Let us save what remains: not by vaults and locks which fencethem from the public eye and use in consigning them to thewaste of time, but by such a multiplication of copies, as shallplace them beyond the reach of accident.”(Thomas Jefferson, February 18, 1791)
