Lots of tools keep stuff safe: The Swiss Army knife approach to digital stewardship

BPE presenation 1Best Practices Exchange
Kathleen Kenney, Amy Rudersdorf
December 2012

If digital stewardship incorporates the entire lifecycle of a digital object, then a one-tool solution may forever remain a figment of our archivist and librarian imaginations. In the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resource's attempts to appropriately steward the digital content under our care (per our legislative mandate), we have purchased or built a variety of tools to ingest, manage, store, and disseminate our born-digital and digitized content. This session named names (of said tools) and gave details about how and why we use them as we do.

Social media may be here to stay, but are your posts?

NCLA Eubank and RickerNorth Carolina Library Association annual meeting
Kelly Eubank, Jennifer Ricker
October 2011

An easy way to reach patrons these days is often via library websites and/or social media accounts. These interactions with patrons have, to some extent, replaced library newsletters, brochures, and/or other paper-based communications. While you probably kept archival copies of those paper-based communications, are you doing the same with your online presence today? The Department of Cultural Resources is archiving state agency web-based content, including social media. This presentation discussed why it might be important for your institution to archive its web-based content, who is best positioned to archive this material (including whether or not there might be natural collaborations that could be formed), things to consider when archiving this type of content, and how this content can actually be archived.

Having the talk: Engaging your donors in the digital preservation conversation

NCLA RudersdorfNorth Carolina Library Association annual meeting
Amy Rudersdorf
October 2011

Librarians and archivists have, arguably, perfected the "keeping of history" in analog form. And, it is fair to say that this rarely requires explaining the intricacies of preservation to donors and content creators, beyond the removal of paperclips or the danger of acidic paper. Not so with digital preservation! Content creators need to understand their role in the digital preservation lifecycle, including concepts such as authenticity, obsolescence, and fixity. This presentation explains how the State Library is engaging state government employees in this new and challenging conversation.

Lisa Gregory, Jennifer Ricker, Amy Rudersdorf
December 2010

Digital preservation is a phrase that is thrown about frequently in the archives and library world. And, responsibility for saving our era from being known as the "Digital Dark Age" has fallen to us. But, do you really understand what it means and what is required to preserve digital objects? This archived 2-hour online webinar, held December 15, 2010, introduces terms, concepts, and some methods for beginning your institution's foray into this important and challenging area.

The "M" Word: What Works and What Doesn't in File Format Migration

migration presentationSociety of American Archivists Research Forum
Jennifer Ricker
August 2010

The State Library of North Carolina's Digital Information Management Program is currently evaluating several existing open source tools and conducting some test migrations on various file formats in our repository. During this presentation we share details about the migration testing itself, what we have learned about the various transformations, and what changes we will make to our workflow based on this testing. It's our hope that our efforts will serve as food for thought for other repositories and promote sharing about other institutions' file format migration experiences.
