The National Archives UK: All About Digital Preservation

I love a good resource on digital preservation. Here is another one from the UK, from the National Archives.

I particularly like the “Digital Preservations FAQ’s” section which talks about funding, expertise, and some golden rules like always holding two copies of a record and documenting processes.

The Guidance section includes practical information about file formats and storage media. Finally, there is a page devoted to Policy Guidance because every good digital collection should be backed up not only in multiple locations, but backed up by a solid policy.

Thanks to Jill Hurst-Wahl at Digitization 101 for pointing out this amazing resource!
