I know I'm a bit of a broken record on this, but one of the best things any institution can do to improve in : Hire people. Full-time, dedicated, permanent, benefitted. Even if you're using vendor/cloud or consortial tools. Something we struggle with in Canada broadly.

Hey folks - I have some 5.25 inch floppies that are Kaypro 4 CP/M 2.2. I created a .dsk image of them, but I'm having trouble finding a tool that can actually mount/extract a .dsk image. Any thoughts? I can render the .dsk files in Notepad ++ so there is content there.

Here's a question from left field. If so many cloud based systems now provide fixity and bit rot checks, why do we need digital preservation software? I'd like to be able to summarise....

Can any of you folks point me toward an example of an accepted formats statement? Already looking recommended format statement but anything else that specifically lays out what an org will or won't accept would be great

Calling fellow archivists and those working with archival materials! I'm writing a talk about getting corporate buy in on digital archives, what are common questions you face or common walls you come up against internally?

Totally endorse this, but would add that is fairly good value from an information-density preserved perspective. I could argue that it's cheaper than e.g. preserving information in physical books.

Sophie Shilling noting the bizarre but true fact that 'archive' means two very different things depending on whether you're an Archivist (permanent important stuff) or an IT Professional (useless old unused stuff)

A DVD-R came to my desk today with disc rot, where the aluminum layer had oxidised and degraded. You can see the discolouration around the edge; it's bad enough you can even see it right through the sleeve. This disc was from 2008, so it wasn't even that old.

Anyone else working in the field of , , & () but not in a tech-focused position/classification or IT dept? I hope that I’m not the only one 😶. I’m curious about the challenges you might face because of this.

Been helping my parents copy photos and videos off old carriers while visiting this summer. Interesting/artistic bitrot in this photograph from a CD-R with faded dye. This is actually two different photos which have been spliced into one.

I'm delighted Flash succumbed to an open format like HTML+JS. But if you don't understand why resurrecting Flash is important to the history of web aesthetics, then I can't imagine you understand very much about aesthetics, the web, or history. HT

As a music-lover and an archivist, this is a heart-breaking read. Shows how a lack of understanding of the importance of master recordings, and their preservation needs, has resulted in a devastating loss of musical history.
