March 12, 2014 Leave a comment
The Chronicles in Preservation project, a collaborative effort led by the Educopia Institute, the MetaArchive Cooperative, the Chronopolis program, the University of North Texas, and Virginia Tech recently made available the Guidelines for Digital Newspaper Preservation Readiness.
The Guidelines for Digital Newspaper Preservation Readiness seek to address digital preservation standards and digital newspaper technical guidelines/practices across a spectrum of readiness options. The Guidelines are geared toward improving preservation readiness for both digitized and born-digital newspaper content. They will be helpful for a wide range of stakeholder institutions (including commercial news publishers), particularly traditional memory stewards such as libraries, archives, and historical societies.
