Helen Forde, President of the Society of Archivists, in JSA Vol 23 No 2, 2002

In her article “Preservation Past and Future” she briefly mentions digi pres, referring to it as “the greatest current challenge to preservation managers and conservators. In terms of vulnerability, electronic material is at greater risk than any other archive or library medium and the scale of e-preservation needed is beyond comprehension.” Mentions the loss of NASA moon data from 1967 – is that true, eh?
