eScience and Digital Preservation, presentation to Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIST) conference November 2004, Rhode Island USA, is the sixth of 12 presentations I have selected to mark 20 years in Digital Preservation.
It is closely related to the previous slideshare for May on the Jisc continuing access and digital preservation strategy but focuses just on the science component.
This is one I wasn’t able to present in person but it was kindly delivered by Gail Hodge.
My brief for the presentation was "thoughts or citations you have for the impact of e-science, particularly the GRID, on information management, particularly archiving, preservation and long-term access."
It is a short presentation of 15 slides covering collection-based science, the Grid, data publishing, and the background and rationale for the Digital Curation Centre (just launched two weeks before in the UK).
It is a snapshot in time and of key issues in 2004 – interesting to contrast with what one would write 10 years on and ponder on progress made.
