Started looking into Digital Curation / Digital Asset Management techniques, tactics and procedures. I’m mostly interested in curating and preserving digital forensics artifacts -- hard drive images, memory images, network trace captures, event log files, etc.—to support team oriented forensics analysis and annotation of large scale digital corpora. I prefer to use open source technologies. Fortunately for me, professional digital archivists are already working the issues!
- There is a list of candidate technologies at the Open Source Digital Asset Management page.
- The Digital Curation Exchange provides a searchable resource directory.
- Also, Leslie Johnston from the Library of Congress posted a short list of tools for digital curation.
The Council on Library and Information Resources provides an overview of the challenges in their December 2010 report titled “Digital Forensics and Born-Digital Content in Cultural Heritage Collections”. A bit on the lighter side…the “Preserving Virtual Worlds Final Report” from IDEALS investigates preservation of video games and interactive fiction.
