From Lisa A. Gregory, Digital Collections Manager, Digital Information Management Program State Library of North Carolina
Raleigh, NC The State Library of North Carolina, in conjunction with the State Archives of North Carolina, is releasing a redesigned, streamlined and mobile friendly digital preservation education site (digitalpreservation.ncdcr.gov). This first-stop site is a great introduction to digital preservation for state employees, librarians and archivists, or anyone interested in making sure their files stay accessible as long as possible.
In the new streamlined version of digitalpreservation.ncdcr.gov, you will find hand-picked suggestions for learning about digital preservation-from tutorials and webinars, to great sources to follow on social media. Also on the site you will find examples of digital preservation-related policies, and presentations on digital preservation, digitization and state government information.
The State Library and State Archives actively manage North Carolina’s print and digital state government records and publications. Both repositories take care of that content according to industry best practices, and educate state employees who work with digital files.
Digitalpreservation.ncdcr.gov was originally launched in 2010 as an introductory digital preservation resource not only for state employees, but also for archivists, librarians, and the public. Now updated, this site makes the information even more approachable.
Creation of this site was supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), as administered by the State Library of North Carolina.
