7.5 Credits, Course, master's level, B7007N
The student acquires knowledge of concepts and models used in digital preservation, in a context of e-government and e-services, as well as perspectives from preservation institutions.

The students are introduced to the field of long-term digital preservation, and the concepts and models that are common in digital preservation. The course covers preservation concepts such as format, significant properties, integrity, authenticity, and content types. The course also introduces models that are used in digital preservation, such as the Open Archival Information Systems (OAIS) model, which is widely used as a reference model in work with digital preservation, and thereby good as a common base of discussions. The course discusses the concepts in a context of e-government and e-services, as well as from an archival institution point of view. At the end of the course the students will be familiar with generic concepts in digital preservation, and with the OAIS model as foundation have an understanding for contextual problems and possibilities.
