Abstract

Digital preservation is the act of ensuring that electronic content of enduring value remains usable and authentic over the long term. While there are unique aspects to digital preservation, it is built on long-standing practices developed by traditional archivists of physical collections. The appraisal, accession and arrangement processes that are an early part of traditional archival procedures are also critical early steps in digital preservation.
