Libraries Digital Strategies: Digital Forensics

 

  LIBRARY SUPPORT FOR RESEARCHERS

    DIGITAL FORENSICS

The Libraries has acquired a Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device (FRED) to ensure long-term preservation of and access to the libraries digital holdings. While digital forensics tools were initially conceived for law enforcement agencies and data security, they are becoming increasingly relevant for institutions seeking to safeguard cultural heritage items created in a digital environment. FRED assists the Libraries in imaging digital objects, preserving legacy formats and media, recovering lost data, ensuring its integrity, and promoting accountability and transparency at the University of Manitoba.
