"Practical Digital Forensics at Accession for Born-Digital Institutional Records"

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Open Source Software on January 29th, 2016

Gregory Wiedeman has published "Practical Digital Forensics at Accession for Born-Digital Institutional Records" in Code4Lib Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

Archivists have developed a consensus that forensic disk imaging is the easiest and most effective way to preserve the authenticity and integrity of born-digital materials. Yet, disk imaging also has the potential to conflict with the needs of institutional archives – particularly those governed by public records laws. An alternative possibility is to systematically employ digital forensics tools during accession to acquire a limited amount of contextual metadata from filesystems. This paper will discuss the development of a desktop application that enables records creators to transfer digital records while employing basic digital forensics tools records' native computing environment to gather record-events from NTFS filesystems.

The decision to eventually come together is not yet final. In this public phase of investigation, each organization seeks feedback from members of their organizations and will investigate carefully the value of all services, projects, membership models and organizational cultures to ensure a smooth transition for members of both organizations should a merger agreement occur.
