Presenting advanced access related research in PERICLES at QI-14

The concept of advanced access combines automatic indexing, automatic document categorization, document retrieval and information visualization in digital libraries, and is crucial to any progress in digital preservation (DP). Namely, what would be the point of preserving anything for the future if one had no access to safeguarded content? Lately the temporal aspect of content, its ageing, composition and dynamics, has become a...

Toward the integration of emulation and virtualization strategies into the conservation of software-based art collections

Part of PERICLES core mission is finding ways to manage the challenges posed by the changing technical environments of complex digital content. For software-based artworks, obsolescence of the original technical platform and the resulting need to migrate the work to a new one, can result in inaccurate performance of the work, or at worst, render it completely inaccessible. Emulation and virtualization techniques offer potential...

Taking a long-term perspective - Maintaining digital assets by managing their evolving digital ecosystems

As digital content and its related metadata are generated and used across different phases of the information lifecycle, and in a continually evolving digital environment, the concept of a fixed and stable ‘final’ version that needs to be preserved becomes less appropriate. As well as dealing with technological change and obsolescence, long-term sustainability requires us to address changes in context. Such a changing...
