DatacomIT are proud to announce that our Digital Preservation Consultant, Roger Mills, will be presenting his recent research in a paper at the VALA2024 conference at RMIT University, Melbourne, next month.

Dr. Roger Mills is an independent researcher and Digital Preservation Consultant for DatacomIT. He works with universities, and local and state governments, to implement systems and strategies for long-term access to, and use of, digital archives and collections. Roger’s background in Digital Humanities research has led to his interest in concepts of provenance, authorship, and curation of bitstreams generated online from geographically dispersed collaboration. His published research traverses these areas, with a focus on intercultural engagement in distributed creative online interaction. Roger has since moved into the private sector to develop his passion for translating cultural knowledge and meaning making in a digital space, and to secure, maintain, and share it with the present, and future generations.

Join us on Wednesday, 10 July, from 12.05pm to 12.35pm for his presentation titled ‘Preservation Starts with Creation: A Framework for University Libraries to Integrate Digital Curation in Scholarly Literacies.’

The paper will be available to download from the VALA2024 conference website.
