Tools for Countering the Threats to Digital Preservation



We begin with a brief recap of the points made  in Chap. 5 about the broad threats to the preservation of our digitally encoded information. Then a number of components, both infrastructure and domain dependent, are discussed and the CASPAR implementations of these are introduced.  Subsequent chapters build up the details of the infrastructure and tools which indicate how these solutions could be implemented and for which strong prototypes exist at the time of writing.
