Please excuse cross postings.


We are pleased to announce the publication of Issue no.6 of Practical Technology for Archives.



In this issue we have three excellent articles, one on dealing with born-digital material on disposable media, one about incorporating a file-renaming program into a digitization workflow to make the files easier to repurpose, and another on a program for searching an institutions server to locate files that should either be deleted or archived.

If you have an idea or proposal for Issue no.7, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


All the Best,

Randall Miles,

Managing Editor
