East Riding Archives – responsible for safeguarding and making available the documentary heritage of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England – have just selected an automated digital archiving solution called Preservica, and launched a new site, offering access to a new public digital archive.
The Archives service oversees a vast collection of records dating from 1185 right up to the present day. With over 400,000 historic items, most of the archive is based on paper, parchment, and other traditional methods of manuscript recording, but over the past 25 years or so, the way that society records information has changed dramatically.
Archivist Sam Bartle says with more and more of today’s information being stored digitally they need a new approach to keeping the data safe.
