New Podcast Series and Digital Preservation Blog to Celebrate World Digital Preservation Day
To celebrate World Digital Preservation Day on 5th November, we are pleased to announce two exciting new additions to our online presence. First of all, we have been invited to contribute to a new initiative by the Digital Preservation Coalition who have been sourcing contributions to a new series of blog posts from their members on the theme "Digits: For Good". To read Max's contribution discussing our new "Query Builder" application which allows tagging and complex searches to be run on the Archivematica database and reports generated from the results, please visit the blog
Additionally, we have created a new series of podcasts on the subject of digital preservation to run alongside our popular Max 2020 series. Our first two contributors are Abby Barletta, Assistant Archivist with the Royal Society of Arts and Rachel Howse Binnington, Deputy Archivist with Fortnum & Mason. To listen to the podcasts please visit the Digital Preservation Podcasts page on the main Max site.
Latest DRYAD and SOTERIA Clients Added
Max are delighted to share details of two SOTERIA / DRYAD installations. The first, a bespoke AtoM and Archivematica installation for the Royal Society of Arts, showcases AtoM and Archivematica as a flexible, branded archive management and digital preservation system. The second, an AtoM / Wordpress hybrid site created for London South Bank University, showcases the potential of AtoM to open up designated areas of your archive to the general public and by dovetailing with other tried and tested web technologies. The end result is a multi faceted user experience, specifically tailored for a broader user cohort.
