Blurring the lines

The infrastructure and technical support required for digital preservation has much continuity with the processes for managing physical archives.  In terms of access and discoverability there are significant differences in approaches required for the digital and the physical.  However the impact of the digital on discovery methods is probably more significant than actual format and it is here that a break from the past is most urgently required.  I will look at these challenges and how a diversity of approaches from different disciplines, blurring the traditional lines between archivists, librarians, data managers etc could bring great benefits.
