Archivists and information managers have traditionally played a key custodial role in protecting and providing access to long-term inactive and historical collections stored on paper and film, but as the volume and diversity of digital content is set to increase exponentially over the coming decades digital transformation and automated access to data is paramount to supporting the objectives of the organization.
In this session you will hear from Rosylnn Ross from Library and Archives Canada, and Michelle Trumbo from the Legal Information Preservation Alliance (LIPA) on how digital transformation and use of a secure digital preservation and access platform has enabled them to deliver end-to-end digital curation life
cycle, reach new communities and meet FOIA - presenting content in a digital form with improved relevance, whilst delivering enduring value.
 The session will go on to explore how some organizations are transforming the way digital information is handled using automation, with a focus on content and metadata enrichment using AI/machine learning to improve access, apply context and improve searchability – elevating the value of digital content, raising the profile of the archive and ensuring archives continue to deliver new and engaging ways in which content can be shared, consumed and enjoyed.
