Getting to the Good Bits - Enabling Access to Born-Digital Materials at Multiple Levels of Representation

Series: 
Emergent Research
Date: 
October 26, 2015
Running Time: 
81:36

Cal Lee, associate professor in the School of Information and Library Science at UNC Chapel Hill, talks about the many tools and methods that can help to ensure that users "get to the good bits" of born-digital content.
Materials with cultural, administrative, scholarly and personal value are increasingly born digital. Libraries, archives and museums (LAMs) have unprecedented opportunities to acquire and preserve traces of human and associated machine activity through access to both consciously created electronic records and various other inscriptions that are the result of interactions with a computer. Likewise, researchers have unprecedented opportunities to discover and learn from those traces.
This talk highlights several methods and tools, with primary emphasis on the open-source BitCurator environment and BitCurator Access software. The BitCurator Environment is built on a stack of free and open source digital forensics tools and associated software libraries, modified and packaged for increased accessibility and functionality for collecting institutions.
