Abstract:You probably can still find some magnetic tapes and CDs somewhere deep in your closet. They are precious memories that you want to keep, but I'm 90 percent sure that you've already thrown the media player away. When we talk about digital preservation, we have to know that the digital containers are as important as the files. I took this picture in New York Public Library, its Microforms Reading Room has the collection of over 350,000 microfilm reels and 3,000,000 microfiche covering a variety of humanities and social sciences subjects. People can read newspapers in 19th century through the ancient microfilm scanner. Nowadays, many products read old versions, but do they fully support them? Can people preserve old version software to read past files? Yes, you might have the media, but do you have the player?
