Who should preserve the electronic information?
Although UT-Texas Medical Center holds a health informatics conference every year, this year’s offering is of particular interest to us on the other end of the spectrum, and hopefully, a much needed crash course in our responsibility to electronic materials. Entitled Vanishing Bits and Bytes: Preserving Digital Information. Speakers will include Clifford Lynch of Coalition for Networked Information, Victoria Reich of LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe) and Samuel Kaplan of the Texas Medical Center. It takes place May 8, 2006 at the UT School of Nursing, Houston. More information is available here.
