Symposium Focal Points

Digital technology is said to provide multiple solutions to many issues and concerns affecting the preservation of and access to archival documents. This is particularly true with regards to storage facilities and near real time access to information and the archival collection. In the rush to embrace digital technology, we have ventured into the "how to" but given much less attention to the "what ifs."

The move to digital archiving is a fact. That debate is over. But it is a move beset with numerous financial, practical, ethical and philosophical consequences whose impact we are only beginning to fully understand.

  • What does digital preservation really mean?

    When documents are digitized, are they presumed preserved? How do you guarantee the authenticity of documents?

  • What are the implications of moving to Digital Archiving?

    What are the risks involved in migrating analoque works to digital? What is the real cost over time of digital preservation? What expertise, tools, resources, and organizational structures will be needed to ensure growth and long term management of digital archives? What are the safest storage strategies? How does all this affect our concept of institutional archives?

  • Are fundamental analogue concepts like "original", "content", "carrier" meaningful any more in the digital domain?

    What is the future for our "legacy" collections of analogue materials?

  • What beginning steps could be undertaken to facilitate the move to digital archiving?

    This conference will grapple with these and other "what if" dreams and nightmares in our digital future. It will look for answers and aim to move the global debate forward.
