Following on from the great success of the first in this series of short
animations, we are delighted to announce the second Team Digital Preservation
adventure, Team Digital Preservation and the Aeroplane Disaster, is now
available for viewing at http://www.youtube.com/user/wepreserve
We believe these light hearted animations encapsulate complex digital
preservation issues and problems introducing and explaining them to the
general public in a funny and easy to follow plot. Please fee free to make
use of these animations as part of your own work to raise awareness and
understanding about digital preservation.
Seamus Ross, Principal Investigator in DigitalPreservationEurope and Dean of
the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto (formerly Director of
HATII at the University of Glasgow), argues that 'the digital curation
practice and research communities need to develop new channels to raise
awareness of the challenges posed by digital materials and to make accessible
to a wider audience knowledge about research developments in the preservation
domain. Animations such as these produced by DigitalPreservationEurope and
WePreserve are a first step in this process.'
DPE's activities are now being absorbed by WePreserve which represents the
synergistic activities of a number of European digital preservation projects.
WePreserve is committed to raise awareness about digital preservation issues
among the widest possible audience and to breaking down barriers to access.
The release of this series or animations marks an important step reaching
Future animations will be released on our You Tube Channel at
