Preserving Digitally

In the last 20 years, digital technology has implemented us to create, use and build up by information in ways that were unthinkable generations ago.  According to Levi,he says “The same technological advances that make obtaining and sharing information so easy also pose some modern challenges.” I would agree with this because sometimes it is hard to keep up with the advanced of technology because of this idea of “reformatting”.

Many libraries and information centers now have digital asset management systems or digital archives for managing and storing digital objects. These digital objects focus on access management, or facilitating the day-to-day use of digital content for users. Levi expressed, “Digital preservation is a bout guaranteeing the future usability of and accessibility to digital content.” and I strongly agree with this because by preserving important information, we are keeping information in stability

I like the ending of this article, as Benjamin Franklin said “You may delay, but time will not.” Today’s digital preservation systems can be improved and libraries,information centers,universities and other institutions around the world are moving forward and Levi, feels it’s time to join them and I couldn’t agree more.

  1. I agree with your blog post because it was similiar to mine. It really is hard to keep up with new information as it is and to be behind technology is much more effective, upon yourself and others especially people who don’t have computers , television or any kind of acces you would be lost or left behind.

  2. Digital technology allows us to use and keep information easily. However, since it is also easy to change and access, researchers have to remind us of the truth. These are facts behind the facts that make facts not facts. Information seems to be kept in stability but there are also exposed risks that power and money can change and distort. In addition, since digital formats of information is kept and accumulated, researchers will face numerous information which is useful and useless.
