1 DIGITAL IMAGING VIEW OF DIGITAL PRESERVATION Presentation by: Richard J. Laxman Family and Church History Department Herbert J. White Family and Church History Department © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March 20041

2 What does Digital Preservation really mean? Why is preserving digital documents difficult? What is the process for Digital Preservation? DIGITAL PRESERVATION © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March 20042

3 Enable reliable, authentic, meaningful and accessible records to be carried forward through time within and beyond organizational boundaries for as long as they are needed for the multiple purposes they serve. --Sue McKemmish, School of Information Management, Monash University DIGITAL PRESERVATION What does Digital Preservation really mean? © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March 20043

4 Preservation should allow future users to: Retrieve, access, decipher, view, interpret, understand, appreciate and experience Informational artifacts (i.e. documents, data, records, sound, movie, etc.) In whatever way and for whatever purpose are desired in the future While retaining their meaning and Validity(i.e. authenticity) -Jeff Rothenburg Dec 2002 DIGITAL PRESERVATION What does Digital Preservation really mean? © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March 20044

22 SOFTWARE DIGITAL PRESERVATION © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March

23 Digital images or records are stored in an encoded format and only understood with a Program The image or record cannot be viewed without the Program to decode the bit stream The bit stream must be decoded to make it viewable to individuals Software and Operating Systems are essential in the imaging Process DIGITAL PRESERVATION SOFTWARE – OPERATING SYSTEM DEPENDENT © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March

27 DIGITAL PRESERVATION MEDIA NOT QUITE All digital media has shown some type of decay in it magnetic ability, pit decay, dye stability, or reflectance breakdown. All digital media is susceptible to Media obsolescence due to format incompatibility, or due to the unavailability of drivers, or controllers. All digital media require Software, software change providing for incompatibility, software becomes obsolete, Software disappears. All digital media require some type of Operating System, Drivers, etc.. When they are no longer available the media is no longer readable. All digital media requires Hardware, as technology improves hardware is improved. After so many cycles of Hardware improvement the software, drivers or operating system no longer will run on the hardware platform Are digital Records Invincible © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March

28 Forever? Digital Data can be duplicated perfectly from one copy to another. WRONG Due to the issues in the previous slide, including Moores Law, and as stated by well respected scientists in the digital field: DIGITAL PRESERVATION How long will digital records last? © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March

29 'Digital information lasts forever, or five years whichever comes first,' says Jeff Rothenberg, senior computer scientist at RAND Corp. "Forget forever. Under less-than-optimal storage conditions, digital tapes and disks, including CD-ROMs and optical drives, might deteriorate about as fast as newsprint == in 5 to 10 years. --Jeff Rothenberg Tests by the National Media Lab, a St. Paul (Minn.)-based government and industry consortium, show that tapes might preserve data for a decade, depending on storage conditions.

30 DATA STORAGE: FROM DIGITS TO DUST Marcia Stepanek: " Up to 20% of the information carefully collected on Jet Propulsion Laboratory computers during NASA's 1976 Viking mission to Mars has been lost. Some POW and MIA records and casualty counts from the Vietnam War, stored on Defense Dept. computers, can no longer be read. And at Pennsylvania State University, all but 14 of some 3,000 computer files containing student records and school history are no longer accessible because of missing or outmoded software.

33 Care and Handling of CDs and DVDs A Guide for Librarians and Archivists DIGITAL PRESERVATION TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March

34 Storage and environmental conditions can have a significant impact on the life of digital media. While CDs and floppy disks can tolerate a fairly wide range of conditions without sustaining immediate damage, constant temperature and relative humidity slows down the process of physical deterioration. Ideally, physical format electronic material should be stored in a dust-free environment, with stable temperature and relative humidity (below 20 degrees Celsius, relative humidity 40 per cent). DIGITAL PRESERVATION TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March

35 Storage issues Improper storage may be the most common reason for premature media failure. Moderation of temperature and humidity are well known to extend the usable life of most storage media, but many other factors can help, too. DIGITAL PRESERVATION dmedia/mediathreats.html maintain temperature ~ 20 deg C (68 deg F) maintain relative humidity around 40% avoid large and rapid fluctuations in temperature/humidity control dust (maintain a slight positive pressure environment) avoid exposure to magnetic fields (magnetic media) avoid exposure to fumes establish a no food or drink policy in media storage areas establish a no smoking policy in media storage areas store media in closed metal cabinets, electrically grounded shelve media vertically (not stacked) store media in approved cases minimize exposure to sunlight and UV from light fixtures © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March

39 EXAMPLES As the Pit on the DVD or CD is changed because of dust, or pit fill, this will change the results when read. When the reflective material begins to breakdown it will change Or when the Dye used in the disk begin to break down the disk becomes unstable DIGITAL PRESERVATION BIT STREAM © 2004 Intellectual Reserve, Inc.25 March
