Concordia, UCN embark on digital preservation projects

Two institutions have recently embarked on digital preservations projects and initiatives. Concordia University has established a long-term digital preservation initiative that Concordia digital preservation librarian Sarah Lake says “is moving the university toward the future of archival work.” The university’s work includes the creation of a Digital Preservation subsite to archive the institution’s digital assets for future use and a digital preservation policy will ensure that digital copies of theses, dissertations, publications, and special collections will be available to researchers in the future. The University College of the North has completed the Elder’s Traditional Knowledge digitization project in collaboration with the Keewatin Tribal Council. Materials in the archive include audio and video recordings of interviews with elders, conference recordings, and oral history material, and aim to preserve the culture, heritage, and language of Northern Manitoba.
