From Bitstreams to Heritage: Putting Digital Forensics into Practice in Collecting Institutions

The BitCurator Project has released From Bitstreams to Heritage: Putting Digital Forensics into Practice in Collecting Institutions.

Here's an excerpt:

The application of forensics tools and methods to the curation of born-digital collections in LAMs has advanced significantly over the past several years. It would have been quite surprising, for example, to hear an archivist talking about write blockers or disk images ten years ago, but such terms are now used frequently at archival conferences and increasingly in the professional literature. The BitCurator project is actively working to construct both the tools and the necessary documentation to help LAMs integrate digital forensics into their workflows. The BitCurator software environment is freely available for download and installation, and we continue to add associated documentation. The next phase of BitCurator will focus on continued software development, professional engagement activities, and further uptake of the software as we work to resolve real-world challenges facing LAMs.
