SESSION 308 - Just Take Those Old Records Off the Shelf: Reconciling Legacy Digital Content with Current Preservation Practice

As technologies improve, digital preservation practice and standards have kept pace. Although this constant adaptation is generally positive, challenges have emerged—particularly in cases of older digital content. The panelists lay out these challenges and discuss options by sharing projects from the University of Michigan to migrate first-generation digitized texts to HathiTrust, from the NIST Research Library’s work preserving legacy technical reports, and from The Henry Ford's work around content previously preserved on older media.
