National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) DigiPres Forum 2018
Topic: The digital librarian: the liaison between digital collections and digital preservation
Poster session following the lightning talk at 2018 NDSA DigiPres Forum Opening Plenary about the role of the digital librarian and how it relates to digital preservation.
It’s common misconception digital librarians are involved only in digitizing historic materials. In fact managing digital projects is only their visible role. Once it’s over, librarians embrace their new role of information architects directly engaged in the digital preservation process of archiving master files. The digital librarian is that unit in the prep process for digital preservation that ensures meticulously organized archival directories, easy navigation and smooth file retrieval.
