Emulation as a preservation strategy

David Anderson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Digital ‘objects’ are, in many ways, a curious product of the 20th Century and have attributes that make them quite unlike any of the objects that preceded them. Their immaterial nature gives rise to diverse concerns for those tasked with preservation activity, requiring substantial changes to be made to preservation practice as well as demanding a significant alteration in the way we think about the nature of objecthood in the digital context.
