Digital Forensics and Born-Digital Content in Cultural Heritage Collections

In 2010 the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) published a paper titled, “Digital Forensics and Born-Digital Content in Cultural Heritage Collections.” Written by Matthew G. Kirschenbaum, Richard Ovenden, and Gabriela Redwine the paper “examines digital forensics and its relevance for contemporary research…The applicability of digital forensics to archivists, curators, and others working within our cultural heritage is not necessarily intuitive. When the shared interests of digital forensics and responsibilities associated with securing and maintaining our cultural legacy are identified—preservation, extraction, documentation, and interpretation, as this report details—the correspondence between these fields of study becomes logical and compelling.”
