Preserving state government digital information:

Preservation Options for Digital Material


The preservation of digital files is dependent upon a number of factors, including policy framework, storage media, file format, security requirements, documentation, and staff skills and time. The value of your digital content determines what level of attention the content requires. The "Preservation Options" grid lays out issues to consider along with various responses in a "simple, better, best" format.

Note: The "Preservation Options" document is in draft form. Comments are welcome and should be directed to Shawn Rounds.
