Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library Authors’ Guidelines for Digital Preservation Going Further Take steps against hardware and software obsolescence. When parts of the technological environment in which you are working begin to become obsolete, they should be upgraded to the most advanced technology available. In today’s information landscape, there are fewer topics that more urgently demand expansive discourse than digital preservation, which touches on everything from technology to copyright. The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) steps up to the challenge with this comprehensive overview. Global in scope, it features case studies and contributions.

Preservation Item Condition Evaluation (ICE) Guidelines Criteria (Guidelines) for Retention of Original and Curator/ Selector Review Digital Capture & Retention Guidelines. From the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA). The NDSA Agenda, last published in , represents a complete update around current advances and needs within crucial areas of focus such as digital collections, technological infrastructure, organizational policy and practice, and research onally, the Agenda also builds on results from the NDSA Institutional Survey.

  A lot has been written about digital preservation and accompanying models, from the Digital Preservation Three-Legged Stool 2 to OAIS 3 to the Data Curation Lifecycle 4 and the Records Continuum, 5 among others; guidelines from NEDCC's Handbook for Digital Projects 6 to the Digital Preservation Management Workshops and Tutorial to North. Digital Preservation, after all, is frequently focused on long term use, which can be quite difficult to achieve considering how fragile digital objects can be. There are several strategies used to help preserve digital objects, such as emulation, migration and data redundancy.
