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

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.
