Writ in Water? An Exploration of the Gap Between Archival Construct and Practice in the Machine-Readable Environment
The late twentieth century explosion of electronic record-keeping
media poses new and compelling challenges. These new challenges arise
from the increasing complexity of the technology of documentation, and
from the increasing fragility of that technology over time. Challenges
posed by changes in the collection, dissemination and storage of
information and records are covered, and an overview of currently
proposed approaches to appraising, storing and preserving the new
media is provided.
