New Report: “State Archiving in the Digital Era: A Playbook for the Preservation of Electronic Records”
The report “State Archiving in the Digital Era: A Playbook for the Preservation of Electronic Records” was published today by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) and the Council of State Archivists (CoSA).
From the Publication Announcement:
States uniquely hold important records on their citizens from birth, to marriage, to property, to death, as well as records that hold general historical significance. For the last several years the number of digital records created by state governments has been rapidly increasing. Many states are finding that they are unprepared to deal with the unique management and preservation issues that are related to digital archives. NASCIO, along with CoSA created this playbook for the preservation of state electronic records. This document includes eleven plays that state officials should consider when working together toward the preservation of digital archives.
