Digital Preservation and Data Integrity: A Case Study


This study investigated the data integrity affected by digital preservation in archival institutions. Digital preservation is a broad term that includes everything that needs to be done to keep digital materials accessible even if the media fails or technology changes. The objectives of this study are to identify the factors that influence digital preservation, to examine the benefits of digital preservation in archival institutions, to measure the extent of digital preservation among members of archival institutions and to assess the data integrity of digital preservation. The advent of digital storage has profoundly altered our surroundings. Data is growing in size, usage and demand. Analysis was done using Atlas ti. Based on the findings, it was found that, in terms of skills, the respondents highlighted that it is associated with knowledge about cloud storage, experiences, and training that would enhance their digital preservation knowledge. In terms of the benefits of digital preservation, it can help in permanent digital preservation, and it is associated with complete data security. Thus, both will make the documents easy to retrieve. Besides, the important aspect is the types of data associated with the measurement of data integrity. Both are important elements in the preservation process in underpinning data integrity. Other findings include the types of data, that are associated with the measurement of data integrity and both are vital elements in the preservation process. The interview was conducted by semi-structured interviews and guided by a conceptual framework.
