The National Archives wins prestigious award for digital preservation


June 23, 2004

The National Archives at Kew won the prestigious Pilgrim Trust Digital Preservation Award last night.

The award was presented by Lloyd Grossman, chair of the Digital Preservation Coalition, and saw TNA beating off stiff competition from the National Library of New Zealand/ Te Puna Matauranga o Aotearoa and others.

It's like a fridge, apparently, keeping "electronic documents fresh for future generations". Hmm. An organisation with a metaphor even more strained than my Digital Aquifer!
