As the world turns and technology grows it is vital that each society saves, archives, and protects information in the proper ways. This helps the future generations know the wisdom of those who came before them. Information that should be preserved ranges from family heirlooms and records, to medical and historical information, to folktales and other stories. For this project, our group has researched different techniques used for preservation of, and access to, the world’s cultural heritage through the World Digital Library.
This is a project for IST618, the Information Policy class in the graduate program at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University, taught in the summer of 2013 by Raed Sharif.
