Information Access Seminar

Stepping Twice Into the Same River: Digital Preservation

Friday, March 19, 2010
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
David S. H. Rosenthal, Stanford University Libraries

The talk Dr. Rosenthal gave here in November 2008 on the problems of digital preservation evolved into a plenary talk "How Are We Ensuring the Longevity of Digital Documents?" at CNI. It concluded that the transition from pre-Web electronic documents for manipulation to post-Web documents for publication had profound effects on digital preservation. In this talk he will broaden the focus to look at the effects on the publishing ecosystem of the looming transition from static content to dynamic services, and how access for future readers could be maintained.
