Information is being produced in greater quantities and shared more broadly than at any time in history. The Internet already makes it possible for almost anyone to publish text and images and share them with billions of people around the world. It is also increasingly spurring the production of video, audio and emerging digital media such as shared virtual worlds. Advanced networking technologies being explored in the Internet2 community and elsewhere will further expand this universe. How will society preserve this information and make it available to future generations? How will libraries and other repositories classify this information so that their patrons can find it with the same ease that they can locate a book on a shelf? This presentation will provide an overview of the potential impact of advanced networking on digital archiving.
