  1. 1. The Future of Welsh Repositories Jake Henry, “Welsh Experience of WW1 Project”, NLW
  2. 2. Conclusions • The WRN successfully set up institutional repositories across Wales. • Provision for the long term digital storage of special collections materials is currently lacking. • Without a consistent development path, the equitable repository environment set up through the WRN will begin to fragment. • There is a clear demand for resources and support to provide advice and practical help to institutions wanting to maintain and develop their repositories. • There is strong interest in the idea of a central repository service which institutions would be able to join.
  3. 3. Partner Material Ingest Process Overview
  4. 4. Screen and Sound Archive • To preserve, promote and celebrate the sound and moving image heritage of Wales. • ITV Wales Archive project digitising thousands of hours of Video and Film. • Unlocking Film Heritage project with BFI creating very high quality copies of important historic film. • A lot of AV content is a risk of being lost forever because of hardware and software obsolescence and the limited lifespan of film.
  5. 5. MabLab • MabLab is a three year National Library of Wales project which aims to establish a system to ingest, preserve and provide access to born digital archives and material. • Digital archives are at risk of being lost for ever because of hardware and software obsolescence and the dangers of bit rot and data loss. • 3 full time and 2 part time members of staff.
