SESSION 410 - Beyond the Floppy Disk: Rescuing Electronic Records from Complex Systems

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Electronic records created and stored in relational databases, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and proprietary and homegrown systems present many unique challenges to ensuring long-term access. Often these complex systems come to the attention of archivists only as they are being decommissioned, sometimes long after system creators have left the organization. The panelists discuss these unique challenges, what tools and techniques are available to address them, and what tools the archival community needs to create.
