Our paper entitled “Decomposing the Digital Preservation Problem with Patterns” was presented by Yannis Tzitzikas at the 25th Panhellenic Conference of Academic Libraries (PALC), at Rethymno, Crete on October 10, 2019.
The paper describes the concept of Digital Preservation Pattern and presents 14 such patterns, their interrelations, and a more general and more abstract pattern that covers the foregoing and is based on modern knowledge representation and reasoning techniques, as they have been identified and analyzed in our book “Cinderella’s Stick – A Fairytale for Digital Preservation“.
It is our honor that that the acclaimed, for her contribution to digital preservation, Barbara Sierman from Koninklijke Bibliotheek (National Library of the Netherlands), and chair of the Open Presentation Foundation (OPF), wrote a post about our book in her blog “Digital Preservation Seeds”.
The post entitled “Digital preservationists and IT colleagues” is available here:
