In today’s digital age, research data is increasingly born digital. As a researcher, you spend countless hours collecting, analysing, and interpreting data for your work. But have you considered what happens to that data once your research is complete?

Digital preservation is the active management of digital content to ensure its long-term usability, accessibility, and authenticity. It is critical to maintaining the integrity of research data and ensuring its availability for future generations of scholars. In this blog post, Elise Bradshaw explores the importance of digital preservation for researchers, describes some best practices for preserving your digital data, and explains how the University of Melbourne’s strategic partnership with the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) supports digital preservation. Plus, an interview with Dr Eva Samaras gives a “Thing in Action” look at how the Records & Information team manage the University’s digital records.
