Abstract

Managing bequests and digital estates: new challenges for libraries – Summary of the LIBER Forum for Digital Cultural Heritage Workshop in Patras (Greece), 5 July 2017

This paper contains a summary of the LIBER (League of European Research Libraries) Workshop on Digital Cultural Heritage, held on 5 July 2017 in Patras, Greece. The workshop addressed questions around who should manage digital materials and how, the necessary tools, the challenges posed by specific formats, and whether there are simple solutions to these. Participants drawn from across Europe explained their own experiences of organising digital preservation efforts, the opportunities to work with tools from outside, the need for rapid action to avoid loss, the value of ensuring easier flows of data between countries in order to support research, but also the privacy issues linked to archiving personal information.
