20.02.2012, 4:00 PM TU Berlin, EN building, seminar room EN 719 (7th floor), Einsteinufer 17, 10587 Berlin: "Facilitating Digital Preservation through Risk Management" (Prof Seamus Ross, iSchool, University of Toronto)

Everything about preserving digital objects is difficult from appraisal to description to management to access. The increasing diversity of types of digital materials curators must handle only exacerbates the obstacles. The challenges are further aggravated by the complexity of the organizational and social spaces in which these materials are used as well as by their awesome quantity. The longevity of digital objects depends upon active and persistent processes. The successful deployment of preservation and curation methods requires new approaches and in particular tools to measure and mitigate the risks associated with maintaining digital objects. This talk looks at the application of risk management methods and tools to support digital longevity and specifically the development and use of DRAMBORA as part of the work of the Digital Curation Centre in the UK and the EU funded initiative DigitalPreservationEurope.
