The folks at 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. The first animation is now ready for viewing on YouTube . DPE hopes that these cartoons summarize complex digital preservation issues and explain them in a funny and easy to follow plot. The first one features "DigiMan" urging you to use Metadata when you store data, such fun!
Future animations will be released on their You Tube Channel.
