Digital Preservation Project

http://www.lib.ed.ac.uk/digpres/

The Special Collections Department in the University Library recently initiated a Digital Preservation project to provide advice and act as a focus to raise awareness, university-wide, of Digital Preservation issues. For any organisation or department that produces electronic information, a strategic preservation plan is vital to ensure the physical reliability, continued usability, and intellectual integrity of their files.The project's aims were to recommend and produce guidelines for the future publishing of University web sites and electronic materials, and to produce a comprehensive strategy for the permanent preservation of the University's core electronic publications.
