Guest Speaker: Miquel Térmens (Universidad de Barcelona)

Moderator: Pamela Vízner (AVP)


To comply with the basic requirements for digital preservation it is necessary to select and implement appropriate technologies based on the context of our organization. Moreover, the definition of roles and responsibilities is key for the success in the administration of the system and to accomplish the preservation of our digital assets. But, where do I begin? How can we determine if a system is appropriate? Which roles must exists or adapt? Miquel Térmens will tell us about his experience with the implementation of the digital preservation system at Universidad de Barcelona and Pamela Vízner will share AVP’s approach to technology selection.
