  • Citizen archive and extended MyData principles (Mikko Lampi, Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences)

    Digitalia – Research Center on Digital Information Management – is developing a professional-quality digital archiving solution available for common people. The Citizen archive relies on an open-source platform allowing users to manage their personal data and ensure access to it on a long-term basis. The solution is on an early pilot phase and based on previously developed and enhanced OSA (Open Source Archive) platform. The motivation for the development work is preserving the valuable digital heritage by ordinary citizens and family archivists – in other words, “keeping their found things found” and capturing that part of  the digital footprint they consider worth preserving. In general, such archive strengthens the civil society, digital rights, and information transparency.

    MyData refers to personal data which complies with the principles of human-centric management and use. MyData paradigm is connected with personal archiving by managing coherent descriptive metadata and access rights, while also ensuring privacy and usefulness. People have the right to obtain personal data, use it freely, and to share, donate or sell personal data to third parties. However, from the Citizen archive point of view, MyData is rather CommunityData – containing information that links various users together. The data is produced and used by the small community, such as in the case of family archives.

    The Citizen Archive is more than just a digital storage such as cloud drives. Most importantly, it relies on the above-listed MyData principles. Users may determine whether they preserve the materials for a specific time period or permanently. They can grant access rights to family members, relatives and researchers. They also have easy-to-use searching and browsing facilities. Finally, users may collectively enrich information by describing the stories behind the archived content.

  • Born Digital 2016: Collecting for the Future (Sarah Slade, State Library Victoria)

    This presentation is about Born Digital 2016: collecting for the future a week-long national media and communications campaign to raise public awareness of digital archiving and preservation and why it matters to individuals, communities and organizations.

    An initiative of the National & State Libraries of Australasia (NSLA) Digital Preservation Group, Born Digital 2016 was designed around five themes — one for each day of the campaign. These were: Science & Space, Indigenous Voices, Truth & History, Digital Lifestyles, and Play. These themes were chosen to engage a range of community sectors and ages. Each provided a different focus for public thinking about the importance of digital collecting, preservation and access: from personal digital archiving to organizational approaches. A professionally-produced video featuring a topic expert — including scientists, journalists, social commentators, media personalities and gamers — was created for each theme.

    The campaign used the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web launch (6 August 2016) to maximize media exposure. The daily theme enabled engagement with national and local audiences through traditional and social media, and provided a focus for individual library events.

    Social media was used to promote the Born Digital videos, events and related content. It was also used to highlight media coverage, including appearances on Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) News Breakfast and State Library Victoria (SLV)’s digital time capsule burial.

    As well as Facebook posts and Tweets published by the NSLA libraries, the #BornDigital2016 hashtag was embraced by people attending on-site events, and reacting to the videos and other content. It was also taken up by several public and university libraries, and high profile organisations, exposing the campaign to a broader audience. The campaign successfully engaged traditional television and print media, and online news outlets, to increase public awareness of what digital archiving and preservation is and why it is important.

  • Whose History? (Katrina Vandeven, MLIS Candidate, University of Denver)
