Abstract


How do we build digital libraries that will last for centuries? How do we rise to the challenge of long term preservation of digital knowledge? The answers are more cultural than technical. Drawing on lessons learned from the Stanford Digital Repository and the Hydra digital library software project (http://projecthydra.org), as well as the philosophy of the Long Now Foundation (http://longnow.org), this talk will ask the audience to consider long-term thinking as it applies to digital libraries.
