Concept Note: Archives are the repository of records and information which can help various enthusiasts, cultural historians, oral historians, folklorists, artists, and the participating communities to look back into their past at ease. The Digital Repository is one of the challenging issues for the humanities and social sciences disciplines due to their ever changing approaches towards digital preservation in the light of various and continuously evolving technological aspects. Cultural institutions, libraries, institutions of higher learning, national and private agencies are trying to curate and preserve different types of data in the form of digitized manuscripts, photographs, moving images, and audio-video material. Most of the cultural data has been created and preserved in the digital format that is why they have been called, ‘born digital’. The term ‘born digital’ refers to the materials or objects that were educed in a digital format.

This issue of Café Dissensus aims to explore the current practice and trends of archiving in this digital era. Digital archive attempts to showcase the cultural life and artifacts through different mode of communication. Methodology of archive is changing day by day. Due to different technical advancements, people are coming up with the latest and further enhanced equipment for documentation. In this scenario, this issue is an attempt to bring together digital archivists, researchers, librarians, oral historians, folklorists, photographers, musicologists, and curators to facilitate a discussion on many pertaining issues and challenges that lie before the process of preserving digitally archival materials in the 21st Century.
