This episode of The Next Page is for anyone interested in digital preservation and stewardship. As digital records increase within organisations and communities, how do we ensure electronic records are preserved and accessible in the long-term? What are the opportunities and what can we do now? In this Library Science Talk, held at the UN Library Geneva as part of the AILIS programme for 2019, Dr. Trevor Owens from the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. shares key principles for supporting digital stewardship, as well as the actions that can be taken today to progress in the practice and connect with others in the international community.
Dr. Trevor Owens currently serves as the first Head of Digital Content Management at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. He works as a librarian, researcher, policy-maker and educator in the field of digital infrastructure for libraries, and is the author of the book The Theory and Craft of Digital Preservation, published in 2018: https://bit.ly/2FUK1is.
