Digital Preservation Best Practices and Guidelines

What is digital preservation?

Digital preservation is a series of managed activities necessary to ensure continued access to digital materials for as long as they are needed.

What does this mean for you?

The more thoughtful you are about creating and managing your digital files, the longer they'll be around in the future.

What can I learn here?

You can learn best practices for preserving digital files, whether it's for your job or in your personal life. We're especially happy to help employees of the state of North Carolina, as well as North Carolina librarians, archivists, or other stewards of cultural heritage.
