smh at people who think they can find a one click solution for digital preservation but not need any staffing support
@ashley this toot ended up being 10x more relevant to my life than I thought
@ashley my gf, who in addition to fielding requests from curators and researchers and staffing public reference desk shifts, is diligently trying to *inventory* the thousands of unorganized boxes in her musem's basement without the help of any cataloging software or on-site IT support (they've been promising to "investigate" an ArchivesSpace instance for over a year, but again, "IT" is a dude who comes in once a week to run anti-virus), is constantly asked what her "digital preservation plan" is
@ashley so like real talk what do most people even think "digital preservation" is?
@The_BFOOL Maybe "everything google does, but for free"?
@ashley in a ...good way..?
@hugh definitely more like the opposite!
