Librarian and Archivist of Canada, Daniel Caron and Professor Eric Mechoulan, University of Montreal spoke Harvard’s Berkman Center earlier today.
From the MediaBerkman Blog:
In order to secure our future, we need to know how to organize our past. If we want to preserve accessibility to valuable information about legal, political, social, and cultural discourses in an era of information abundance, it becomes vital to design carefully how we distinguish between noise and significant pieces of information. In this talk, Daniel J. Caron — Librarian and Archivist of Canada — and Eric Mechoulan — professor at the Université de Montréal — discuss the challenge and opportunities for archiving in the digital age.
