A Transformation Speakers Series

Dr. Luciana Duranti

Chair and Professor - Archival Studies
Archival and Information Studies, University of British Columbia

Library and Archives Canada
Auditorium, 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa
Thursday, May 5, 2005
9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.


The goal of the InterPARES Project (International Research on Permanent Authentic Records in Electronic Systems), an international multidisciplinary research initiative begun in 1999, has been to develop the theoretical and methodological knowledge necessary to ensuring the long term preservation of authentic digital records. The first phase sought solutions to the problems presented by technological obsolescence and media fragility, while the second phase has focused on the problems presented by dynamic digital records, whose primary characteristic appears to be the lack of fixed form and stable content. This presentation will provide an overview of the issues addressed by InterPARES, its methodology and preliminary findings, and will identify possible policy frameworks for institutions responsible for the preservation of our digital memory.

About the speaker

Luciana Duranti is Chair of and a Professor in the Master of Archival Studies Program (MAS) at the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies of the University of British Columbia, where she has taught since 1987. Duranti's research has primarily focused on testing the validity of traditional concepts, principles, and methods for acquiring and maintaining control of electronic records. It has also focused on finding solutions to electronic records issues that are not specific to a given socio-cultural and juridical context but can be universally applied. To this purpose, she has worked with the Department of Defense of the United States to develop the US federal records management standard 5015.2, which is also used to certify vendors of records management systems. She is currently Project Director of InterPARES, a large multinational, collaborative project involving researchers from 20 countries.

Session will be in English. Simultaneous translation will be available.
