The Derbyshire collection dates back to the 1990s and contains a wide variety of file and format types (WRL and CAD models, videos, documents, data and web based content). The born-digital material of this collection is accessible through the online catalogue of the National Archives. However, the collection is difficult to navigate and in some instances the data is not available.

This presentation will demonstrate a number of models by which the collection material could be made more optimally presented online, and the end user given a clearer understanding of the subject in context. The presentation will also focus on the wider issues surrounding access to born-digital material in archives.

Speakers

Ian Henderson works within the Research Team of the Digital Archiving Department at the National Archives, and specialises in digital Audio-Visual preservation and access.

Leontine Talboom is a collaborative PhD student at University College London and The National Archives. Her project is focusing on the constraints that digital preservation practitioners are facing when making born-digital material accessible.
