Webcast: Digital Preservation: An Overview

Peter Van Garderen has posted a webcast version of his presentation entitled ‘Digital Preservation: An Overview’ given at the Managing Information Assets in the Public Sector Conference. The webcast is 77 minutes in length with thought provoking images. He has also posted online the reference list from his presentation. Of course, he's blogged about it too.

As he notes, this is an introductory presentation meant to give people an overview of the problem and the solutions. And although sitting at your computer for over an hour listening/watching a presentation may not sound thrilling, this is a good way of being introduced to this important topic.

BTW one of the things I like about it is that Van Garderen introduces some of the terminology and ideas from outside of the library profession.
