As many of you will know DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE) are committed to making digital preservation materials available to the widest possible audience and to breaking down barriers to access. The release of a new series of short animations introducing and explaining digital preservation problems and solutions for the general public marks an important step reaching this goal.
We are delighted to announce that the first animation is now ready for viewing at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbBa6Oam7-w
We believe these cartoons encapsulate complex digital preservation issues and problems and explain them in a funny and easy to follow plot. Please fee free to make use of these animations as part of your own work to raise awareness and understanding about digital preservation.
Future animations will be released on our You Tube Channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/wepreserve
