Heritage in the Digital Age: Guidelines for Preserving and Sharing Heritage with Digital Techniques.
This conference poster describes for individuals, organizations, and public agencies responsible for cultural heritage the challenges and opportunities that stewards of this important information face. Challenges include: heritage loss due to poor access and preservation; lack of perceived value; hesitancy to share information resulting in absence of public interest; and loss of heritage information through destruction or neglect. Digital techniques can provide access to information (with appropriated controls) and long-term preservation. Current legal and policy issues related to digital technology and cultural heritage are summarized. Our work with digital archaeological data is used to consider how to preserve more general cultural heritage data and information.
