From the Document:
The California State Library’s Digital Preservation Strategy is a framework to guide long-term preservation and sustainable access to our digital collections. This strategy governs the operation, management, and scope of the California State Library’s digital preservation program and provides guidance on the preservation of digital materials to ensure their reliability, authenticity, and long-term accessibility. This strategy also describes the general principles and rules for digital preservation that the library follows and guides the implementation of these policies. Steps to implement the digitization and preservation program must be in accord with this strategy to guarantee their coherence. This strategy is intended to be a living document and may be updated at any time to reflect changes in technology, infrastructure, and operational developments in the digital preservation program.
