In this post for The Signal, I talk with W. Walker Sampson about his work at Mississippi Department of Archives and History and about his use of the NDSA Levels of Digital Preservation. Walker has since moved on to be Digital Archivist at University of Colorado. He blogs at http://wsampson.wordpress.com/.

Using the Signal blog image of Walker at a podium seemed weird, so this is from the first page of “crossing the river” search results from LC P&P. It’s pretty cool. Item page: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/cph/item/93513630/
