Digital Data #1: Content Creation


In pharmaceuticals and healthcare, the majority of searching and researching is undertaken online. To undertake this effectively requires digitally mediated research methods, which refers to the application of online and other digital technologies, such as online papers, surveys, text messages and interactive voice response systems for research purposes. On the other hand, the digital librarian needs to ensure that digital data has been presented correctly and appropriately indexed. There are a number of digital libraries that researchers in the sector will seek to access. This requires digital archiving. This is the process of the practice of identifying data that is no longer active and moving it out of production systems into long-term storage systems. Archival data is stored so that at any time it can be brought back into service. The activity creates digital repositories. These are online databases of digital objects that can include text, still images, audio, video, digital documents, or other digital media formats. The pharmaceutical industry depends heavily on the integrity and confidentiality of archived records.

This article looks at some examples of how data can best be stored, archived, indexed, and presented. Here the goals of digital archiving can be summarized as: to preserve, contextualize, present, and enable the use of digital resources.
