Planets Update for Sun PASIG

629 views

Published on

I gave this presentation to the Sun PASIG (Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group) in San Francisco, 2009. It gives an overview of the EU co-funded Planets digital preservation project and includes some early discussion of the plans to create a not-for-profit organisation to carry the technology forward beyond the end of the project in mid 2010.
