One of my first tasks when I began in my role as a Digital Preservation Officer at the University of Melbourne (in March 2016) was to interview 40-odd research support staff, in order to analyse the university’s capability to support digital preservation, and to identify the improvements required for effective long-term sustainability of digital assets.
One of the questions I asked during the interview process was:
What does digital preservation mean to you?
To celebrate the very first International Digital Preservation Day in 2017, I’ve put together a few of the responses to this question in a short video.
