The Atlas continued

Thanks for the positive feedback on my blog to create an Atlas of Digital Damages. The upcoming IPRES conference in Toronto might be a good opportunity to exchange ideas and may be to initiate something in (international) collaboration. I’m happy to discuss this.

One possible place to put this information could be the File Format Issue Registry, that will be developed in the European SCAPE¬† project (of which I’m a member too). Other ideas are welcome, may be people from the NDSA¬† are also interested.

In the mean time, input is needed, so all your horror stories with scaring pictures are welcome! So if you have pictures of damaged MS-Word files, PDF files that are looking odd, Excel files with missing information, and you as a preservation expert know what is the cause of this, send me a link to this information. This will contribute to make digital preservation “visible”.
