Digital Forensics Lab at Stanford University Libraries

Stanford University Libraries is building a new Digital Forensics Lab to help preserve and provide access to at risk digital archival material. As stated on their project website, “The new lab will consist of two forensic workstations with the ability to read a wide range of digital media such as floppy discs, CDs/DVDs, hard drives, computer tapes and most consumer types of flash memory.” This project may help those of us looking at ways to access and preserve data on older computers. Check out their most recent project updates:
