Mr David Fricker, who is the President of the International Council on Archives and Director-General of the National Archives of Australia, visited the Computer Archaeology Laboratory today.

Dr de Vries and Mr Fricker discussed the complexities of digital preservation such as international repositories for born-digital data, governance, rights management, accessability and many more.

Mr Fricker sees international collaboration as critical. Finding reliable, standardised methods of digital preservation requires a global response.
