International Council on Archives

Mr David Fricker, who is the President of the International Council on Archives and Director-General of the National Archives of Australia, visited the Computer Archaeology Laboratory today.
Dr de Vries and Mr Fricker discussed the complexities of digital preservation such as international repositories for born-digital data, governance, rights management, accessability and many more.

Mr Fricker sees international collaboration as critical. Finding reliable, standardised methods of digital preservation requires a global response.

  1. Does anyone think we yet have the collective momentum to form a dedicated national computer history museum with a charter to also preserve our digital heritage?

    There are disparate efforts here and there but it would seem timely to finally get a national facility supported so that effort can be concentrated.
