The Memory of the World in the Digital age: Digitization and Preservation

A recent conference held with UNESCO and the University of British Columbia (Canada) explored the main issues affecting the preservation of digital documentary heritage. The more than 500 participants discussed strategies that can contribute to greater protection of digital assets and produced the UNESCO /UBC Vancouver Declaration for implementation by UNESCO, and its Member States, professional associations and industry.

The conference participants included professionals from the heritage sectors, as well as a range of government, IT industry, rightsholders and other stakeholders who were exposed to the views of experts from all levels of development in an attempt to produce practical recommendations to ensure permanent access to digital documentary heritage.
