Een hart onder de riem van 'ouderwetse' archivarissen:
Christian Keitel from Ludwigsburg quoted one Chris Rusbridge as saying that digital preservation was “easy and cheap”, and then comprehensively showed that it was at least complicated and difficult. He did suggest that sensible bringing together of digital preservation and non-digital archival approaches (in both directions) could suggest some improvements in practice that do simplify things somewhat.En een relatieverende opmerking aan het eind:
In discussion, we felt that the point of David’s remarks was that we should understand that perfection was not achievable in the digital world, as it never was in the analogue world. We have never managed to keep all we wanted to keep (or to have kept) for as long as we wanted to keep it, without any damage.
Ik heb me voorgenomen om over twee weken in Antwerpen op een zelfde manier verslag te doen van de Studiedag Digitaal Depot.
