“Born digital” content refers to files that were originally created in a digital format, as opposed to “digitized” materials that have been converted from original analog and physical items. As the Indiana University Libraries acquire more born-digital collections, new workflows and procedures are required to address the challenges they pose for long-term preservation and access. The Born Digital Preservation Lab (BDPL) provides equipment and workflows to ensure that such content retains its authenticity and integrity for future use by the university community and researchers at large. This presentation will highlight key considerations and principles for preserving born-digital materials and introduce attendees to current procedures in the BDPL.
