Title: Library Trends 54 (1) Summer 2005: Digital Preservation: Finding Balance
Contributor(s): Woodyard-Robinson, Deborah
Subject(s): digital preservation
Abstract: The preservation of digital resources is about finding ways to maintain our digital heritage, whether it exists in the form of e-journals, database records, Web sites, emails, digital images, audio-visual materials, interactive programs, or any other kind of binary data. Libraries frequently engage with a wide variety of these resources and understand how quickly and easily we lose use of them when computers change or links break. Over the past ten years, many different solutions have been proposed, and as many opinions have been voiced about whether these solutions will work. While it is often perceived that these opinions contradict or argue with each other, the real answer is in finding the balance of what works in a particular situation. With this issue of Library Trends we may start to see how each solution has its own benefit in a particular context. (adapted from the introduction)
