Welcome back to the Tech Policy Grind Podcast by the Internet Law and Policy Foundry. In this episode, Class 4 Fellow Rebecca Kilberg interviews Dr. Stephen Abrams, Head of the Digital Preservation program at the Harvard University Library.
How do priorities for digital preservation develop? How similar are digital preservation strategies and policies to those used in traditional preservation contexts, and where do they differ? What new costs must be accounted for, and what unexpected benefits are being uncovered? Our experts explore how preservationists are adjusting to novel challenges and opportunities while developing the digital arm of a field devoted to “ensuring the continuity of human memory.”
Thanks for listening, and stay tuned for our next episode!
