WLIC2017 PAC Open Session
The IFLA Strategic Programme on Preservation and Conservation invites interested professionals to submit proposals for the open session to be held in Wrocław, Poland, 19-25 August 2017.
The long-term preservation of digitised and born digital materials poses many challenges for heritage professionals globally, spanning from policy requirements to constantly changing technology infrastructures. Considering both, digitised and born digital materials, this session will explore practical examples of how institutions respond to these challenges. The session will highlight challenges and critical aspects, and identify case studies which provide solutions to ensure our digital heritage will survive for future generations and we avoid digital amnesia.
We seek pragmatic use-cases and examples to enable a discussion on best practice and exchange on this topic.
