beginners guide to digital preservation

Beginner's Guide to Digital Preservation was created for the JISC by UKOLN as part of a project that ran from April to September 2010. A blog (the JISC Beginners Guide to Digital Preservation project blog) has been written about the process of putting together the guide. The aim of this guide is to provide digital preservation information for members of the JISC community who arenÆt active in the area of digital preservation. It takes a straightforward approach to the subject area, is pragmatic and applicable to those who are new to the topic area. (Excerpt from this source)

born digital

The term born-digital refers to materials that originate in a digital form. This is in contrast to digital reformatting, through which analog materials become digital. It is most often used in relation to digital libraries and the issues that go along with said organizations, such as digital preservation and intellectual property. However, as technologies have advanced and spread, the concept of being born-digital has also been discussed in relation to personal consumer-based sectors, with the rise of e-books and evolving digital music. Other terms that might be encountered as synonymous include "natively digital," "digital-first," and "digital-exclusive. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Born digital)

digital academic repositories

The Digital Academic Repositories (DARE) programme is a joint initiative of the National Library of the Netherlands (KB), the Dutch universities, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). DARE's aim is to store the results of all Dutch research in a network of repositories, in which the National Library fulfils the role of safe place in charge of digital preservation. In this way all participants retain responsibility for and control over their own data while making them accessible at the same time. Moreover, as the KB takes responsibility for storage and long-term preservation, the universities can concentrate on their research work. (Excerpt from this source)

digital object identifier

A digital object identifier (DOI) is a character string used to uniquely identify an electronic document or other object. Metadata about the object is stored in association with the DOI name and this metadata may include a location, such as a URL, where the object can be found. The DOI for a document is permanent, whereas its location and other metadata may change. Referring to an online document by its DOI provides more stable linking than simply referring to it by its URL, because if its URL changes, the publisher need only update the metadata for the DOI to link to the new URL. However, unlike URLs, the DOI system is not open to all comers; only organizations that can meet the contractual obligations of the DOI system and that are willing to pay to become a member of the system can assign DOIs. The DOI system is implemented through a federation of registration agencies coordinated by the International DOI Foundation, which developed and controls the system. The DOI system has been developed and implemented in a range of publishing applications since 2000; by late 2009 approximately 43 million DOI names had been assigned by some 4,000 organizations.

digital preservation

Digital preservation is the active management of digital information over time to ensure its accessibility. Preservation of digital information is widely considered to require more constant and ongoing attention than preservation of other media. This constant input of effort, time, and money to handle rapid technological and organizational advance is considered a major stumbling block for preserving digital information. Indeed, while we are still able to read our written heritage from several thousand years ago, the digital information created merely a decade ago is in serious danger of being lost, creating a digital Dark Age.

digital preservation training programme

This project aims to develop a modular training programme in digital preservation, with class-taught, online and off-line components. It meets the needs identified in the recent JISC-funded study, carried out by Cornwell Management Consultants, into training needs in digital preservation. It builds on existing exemplars of training and information provision, including the NEH-funded Cornell University digital preservation course, the DPC's travelling 1-day workshop, the "Preservation Management of Digital Materials" handbook, and training from existing JISC-funded services such as AHDS. The training will be developed at multiple levels, to meet the needs of senior managers as well as practitioners and new staff. By including self-paced material as well as taught components and group exercises, it will provide information in a way suited to all who might require it. With the backing of the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), the course can be made available outside the JISC community, bringing in revenue which will aid the long-term sustainability of the project's outputs. Project start date: 2004-10-04. Project end date: 2006-10-03. (Excerpt from this source)

digital repositories

A repository in publishing, and especially in academic publishing, is a real or virtual facility for the deposit of academic publications, such as academic journal articles. Deposit of material in such a site may be mandatory for a certain group, such as a particular university's doctoral graduates in a thesis repository, or published papers from those holding grants from a particular government agency in a subject repository, or, sometimes, in their own institutional repository. Or it may be voluntary, as usually the case for technical reports at a university. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Repository)

digitisation

Digitising or digitisation is the representation of an object, image, sound, document or a signal (usually an analog signal) by a discrete set of its points or samples. The result is called digital representation or, more specifically, a digital image, for the object, and digital form, for the signal. Strictly speaking, digitizing means simply capturing an analog signal in digital form. For a document the term means to trace the document image or capture the "corners" where the lines end or change direction. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Digitisation)
