Digital Forensics and Digital Preservation: An Interview with Kam Woods of BitCurator. | The Signal

We’ve written about the BitCurator project a number of times, but the project has recently entered a new phase and it’s a great time to check in again. The BitCurator Access project began in October 2014 with funding through the Mellon Foundation. BitCurator Access is building on the original BitCurator project to develop open-source software that makes it easier to access disk images created as part of a forensic preservation process.

Kam Woods has been a part of BitCurator from the beginning as its Technical Lead, and he’s currently a Research Scientist in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As part of our Insights Interview series we talked with Woods about the latest efforts to apply digital forensics to digital preservation.
