Digital Collections: A Strategic Policy Framework for Creating and Preserving Digital Resources--AHDS

Neil Beagrie and Daniel Greenstein of the Arts and Humanities Data Service, a program funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), UK, have authored this report, a public consultation and review draft. The study presents thirteen recommendations in the areas of long-term digital preservation, standards, the policy framework, and future research. Six case studies highlight some of the real-life considerations concerning digital preservation. At a time when content providers and libraries are racing headlong toward digitization of information resources, this study provides critical guidance.
