English abstract

For digital archives, the innovative use of information technology will enable archival information to be accessed anywhere anytime by anyone who needs them. This is the ultimate objective of archival preservation---to preserve materials of enduring value for the sake of posterity. However, the need to integrate technology and content is evidently significant. Funding assistance and the commitment of archivists and information professionals in such digital initiatives are critical to its success.
