Maintaining continuity in a digital data driven world is emerging as a key challenge for organisations, communities, governments and societies. Digital continuity is defined as the ability to use digital information in the way that is needed for as long as it is needed. It encompasses understanding the frameworks, principles, processes and technologies underpinning intergenerational system conceptualisation, design, development and implementation.
This unit will build on the introduction to digital/data curation provided in FIT5146. It will examine the laws, frameworks and policies for managing and preserving digital media and data as evidence and cultural heritage; access and appraisal strategies, policies and tools, metadata regimes for digital media and data archives; digital repository platforms, technologies, systems and tools; management of archival databases, datasets and digital media collections; and development and deployment of digital media and data archiving tools and services for users. Exemplar digital media and/data archiving initiatives and projects in the community and cultural heritage sectors will also be explored.
