Writing in the Library of Congress' Digital Preservation Blog at http://goo.gl/TeY4b, Susan Manus describes several new videos from the Belgian project “Archipel.” The Archipel project is a recent collaboration by organizations in Belgium, to study digitization and digital preservation of cultural heritage materials.
Not only are the videos entertaining, they also make the point about the importance of digital preservation. The Archipel project team has produced five videos (listed near the top of the page), each focused on issues relating to the creation and management of digital materials, starting with an “overview” video of the project. The other videos focus on specific areas such as legal research (within the context of Belgian law, but also noting creative commons options), technical research (the construction of an archive for future sustainability, noting among other things, use of the PREMIS OWL standard) and social impact (the need for more online presence for Flemish performing arts, for example).
