In this chapter we look at these in more detail, supported by information about what others worry about. There are some obvious threats to the preservation of digitally encoded information. e. the deterioration in our ability to read the bits in which the information is encoded. e. making multiple copies. One way to think about this is to consider what one might be able to rely on in the long term. Within a single organisation, with a continuous supply of adequate funding, the job of digital preservation is at least feasible.

Data Object Interpreted using its Fig. 1 Representation information Representation Information Yields Information Object 18 3 Introduction to OAIS Concepts and Terminology The definition of Information Object may seem a little circular. However its purpose is not to define something specific, for example in a computer programme. Instead it really only provides a simple term for something which we can apply to many different things in people’s heads. The key idea is that it is something that allows us to talk about what knowledge is being exchanged.

2X in total Thus one can argue that the hardware cost is at least controlled. However each 3 years the amount of data may easily have increased by, say, a factor of 8, thus the cost keeping all the data would be: X + 2∗ X X/2 + X/4 +... 8∗ X/2 + 8∗ X/4 +... 8∗ X 64∗ X/4 +... 32∗ X = Thus one can see that there is a real danger that the growth of data volumes may easily swamp the cost savings introduced by new technologies. Moreover the cost of personnel, and, more importantly, the cost of preserving the information rather than simply keeping the bits, has been left out of the calculations.
