Preserving digital information : report of the Task Force on Archiving of Digital Information by Task Force on Archiving of Digital Information( Book )

The 21-member Task Force on Archiving of Digital Information was formed in December 1994 and spent a year studying what is needed to make digital libraries stable, accessible, and valid. Their final report is divided into the following sections: (1) "Introduction," which examines the fragility of cultural memory in a digital age and the limits of digital technology; (2) "The Challenge of Archiving Digital Information," a discussion of the obsolescence of certain digital media, migration of digital information to other hardware/software configurations or generations, legal and institutional issues, and the need for deep infrastructure; (3) "Information Objects in the Digital Landscape," which examines the issue of integrity of digital information, and stakeholder interests in that question; (4) "Archival Roles and Responsibilities," about the operating environment, migration strategies, and managing costs and finances; and (5) "Summary and Recommendations." One of the major findings of the study was that a process of certification was needed to create a climate of trust in this field of endeavor. The future needs a sufficient number of people who can be trusted to go to great lengths to store, migrate, and provide access to digital collections. A series of pilot projects and support structures are recommended. Appendices include copies of the charge of the task force and of a detailed analysis of a cost model. (Contains 75 references.)

Computer files and the research library by Margaret Johnson( Book )
2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
This report on a machine-readable data files workshop highlights unresolved issues related to innovative approaches to collecting, describing, and providing service for computer files in research libraries. The remarks of four of the workshop speakers are presented. Margaret Johnson of the University of Minnesota gives a comprehensive review of collection management and development issues, from understanding the medium to training bibliographers. Anita Lowry of Columbia University introduces the Electronic Text Service, which she describes as probably the first research-library-based research and instructional facility devoted to machine-readable humanities texts. Lynn Marko of the University of Michigan describes her library's ground-breaking project to catalog Research Libraries Information Network (rlin) data files from the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research. Finally, Katherine Chiang of Cornell University presents a detailed checklist of the skills and expertise required to provide access to computer files, beginning with selecting the computer file and ending with assisting patrons in data extraction. Concluding the report are the workshop agenda, a list of the workshop attendees and their mailing addresses, a summary of the workshop discussion results, and summaries of six projects: (1) "Computer Files in the Research Library: Issues of Collection and Access" (Cornell University): (2) "Capturing Information about Machine-Readable Files in the Humanities" (Dartmouth College); (3) "Progress in mrdf: The Machine-Readable Data File Project" (University of Florida); (4) "Policy Development for the Acquisition of Machine-Readable Data: a Demonstration Project" (Northwestern University); (5) "Covering the Bases: Executive Summary" (New York University); and (6) "Providing Local Access to Machine-Readable Data Files: Choices and Tradeoffs" (University of Pennsylvania).
