State Records Digital Archives project featured in IT News March 22, 2012

The Digital Archives project was profiled in an article published yesterday on IT News:,nsw-govt-to-open-source-digital-archives-software.aspx.

It’s a great piece, giving extensive coverage to digital preservation issues, the scope of the Digital Archives project, the benefits of an ‘open source’ approach,  metadata, search, and (one of our bugbears) making it clear that there is a difference between digitising paper records and building a digital archives to manage all types of digital records.
