Digital Preservation Decision Tree Model to Establish Whether a Digital Resource Should be Preserved
Digital preservation decision trees to help small and medium museums make decisions regarding which of their digital resources should be preserved for the long-term.
Artists in Canada, compiled and maintained by the National Gallery of Canada Library, is a bilingual union list that identifies the location of documentation files on Canadian artists. Libraries and art galleries across Canada have contributed biographical information and lists of their documentation files to create this resource which contains information for over 51,000 artists. Each record includes:
- brief biographical information on the artist, such as birth and/or death dates,place of birth and/or death, and
- artist technique
- name variants.
Available in English and French.
This paper explores the circumstances under which cultural institutions (CI) should seek to control non–commercial reuse of digital cultural works. It describes the results of a 2008 survey of CI professionals at U.S. archives, libraries and museums which gathered data on motivations to control access to and use of digital collections, factors discouraging control, and levels of concern associated with different types of unauthorized reuse. The analysis presents three general themes that explain many of the CI motivations for control: “controlling descriptions and representations”; “legal risks and complexities”; and, “getting credit: fiscal and social costs and revenue.” This paper argues that CI should develop a multiplicity of access and use regulations that acknowledge the varying sensitivity of collections and the varying level of risk associated with different types of reuses. It concludes by offering a set of examples of collections employing varying levels of reuse control (from none to complete) to serve as heuristics.
La Direction des musées de France has created a list of « Domaines », used in their collections database, Joconde.

From the Web site / du site W3 : "The Scout Portal Toolkit (SPT) allows groups or organizations that have a collection of knowledge or resources they want to share via the World Wide Web to put that collection online without making a big investment in technical resources or expertise."
Du site W3 : "Ce didacticiel offre des informations de base sur l'utilisation de l'imagerie numérique afin de convertir et rendre accessible le contenu de notre héritage culturel. Il introduit également certains concepts défendus par la Bibliothèque de l'Université Cornell, en particulier l'intérêt des conditions pré requises d'étalonnage avant d'entreprendre une opération d'imagerie numérique. Vous y trouverez des informations techniques mises à jour, des formules mathématiques et des contrôles de connaissances conçus pour tester votre niveau de compréhension."
