Improving the Ratio of Information to Data in your Collection : Tuesday Apr 30, 11:40 AM-12:25 PM (EST)

Effective use of the information in your archive requires quick & effective discovery and easy access to the data preserved within. The Information structures that we inherited from the physical world are not suited for the new sources of information and manual processes are not scalable to handle the increasing volumes of digital data. In a collaborative approach by over a hundred user organizations Preservica has embraced challenge. This presentation shares the lessons learnt from the collective intelligence of our users.

We are also joining forces with CoSA as Preservica's Lori Ashley presents on the objectives, process and expected outcomes following the joint research initiative into the risks to electronic state government records from file format and technology obsolescence.

Collaboration Strategies for Transfer, Preservation and Access : Monday Apr 29, 4.05pm - 5.05pm (EST)
