The entirety of the people’s cherished arts, customs, festivals, sacred or worship sites, norms, values, ideologies, dress and dress patterns, traditional monuments, and architectures, are cherished and conserved for their historical, political, educational, recreational, and religious significance among others” is known as cultural heritage.
In recent times, digital preservation has become a contemporary trend of access to, and preservation of cultural heritage as it seems to be the most rational method of safeguarding cultural heritage.
The preservation of the digital cultural heritage seems more like an extension of the traditional tasks of national libraries, archives, and museums. Execution of this traditional ask in the digital world, however, requires new knowledge and expertise.
Nonso Mordi speaks with Natasha Gordon, operations manager at the Heritage and Cultural Society of Africa Foundation and HACSA-USA on “Safeguarding Africa’s cultural heritage through digital preservation”
