  • Preserver Guidelines. Preserving digital records : Guidelines for organizations

    These brochure-style guidelines have been developed by The InterPARES 2 Project to provide concrete advice to those who are responsible for the long-term preservation of digital records. They are not intended to be comprehensive, but to highlight a number of areas that are particularly important to the preservation of authentic digital records, which experience has shown to be often overlooked in the rush to accept digital records into archival repositories.

    The guidelines have been tailored to address the preservation needs of organizations or programs whose records must be retained and consulted for long periods and those of archival institutions that take on the responsibility for the long-term preservation of the records of others and for their continuing accessibility to the public they serve. In both these cases, human and financial resources, as well as in-house technical expertise are frequently limited.
