Preserving the future

pen drive

University staff at the History Centre are beginning to consider the issues surrounding the collection, storage and management of born-digital archives - material including e-mail, letters, reports, blogs and websites that are created using a computer.

Between 2009-2011 the University participated in the AIMS Project; Born Digital Collections: An Inter-Institutional Model for Stewardship with colleagues at the Universities of Virginia, Stanford and Yale. The project was funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the AIMS White Paper is available online. 

We continue to contribute updates on our work via the born-digital archives blog. This site includes details of work in-progress at Hull, details of colloboration and dissemination and links to other projects and tools.
