KeepIt in half a minute

Presented as part of the half-minute madness session at the JISC Infomation Environment and VRE programme meeting (Twitter #inf11): “prepare your 30 second introduction to your project. No powerpoint slides permitted, should be aimed at a general audience.”

Steve Hitchcock, KeepIt project

Last week David Hockney was on TV painting Yorkshire landscapes in watercolour, a new medium to him.

Ohers might use photography, or even words, to picture such scenes.*

Our canvas is digital and presents many new media, and some old.

So our repositories are at once gallery, laboratory and academy all in one.

Just as for Hockney, people would expect no less than to be able to see the works today and tomorrow.

Deposit it, store it, use it, keep it. KeepIt project: keeping stuff safe in digital repositories for the arts, science and teaching.
