Description

In January 2000, the Council on Library and Informational Resources (CLIR) assembles a group of professionals who were considered experts from different domains of the information resources communities to address the question: What is an authentic digital object? The article contains five position papers from that gathering, in which the contributors identify the attributes that define authentic digital data over time. The goal was to start a discussion among the different communities that have a commitment to authenticity. The five contributors looked at variety of concepts from a variety of disciplines: definitions of authenticity, case studies, standardization efforts, the historian’s view, interdisciplinary differences and goals, and preservation.
