NDSA Levels of Digital Preservation Revision Project

The updated Levels of Digital Preservation represent a codification of current technological practices for long-term preservation of digital resources in galleries, libraries, archives, and museums. These guidelines are presented in an easy to understand matrix designed to be useful for newcomers and experts alike. The redesign looks at five functional areas of digital preservation and recommends a tiered set of practices that map to four increasingly robust levels of digital preservation. Available in multiple languages, this update also includes an assessment tool and technological implementation guidance for using the levels.


NED: National eDeposit service for Australia

The National edeposit (NED) service was built to collect, preserve, and provide access to Australian electronic publications. A world-first collaboration between the national, state and territory libraries of Australia (nine libraries in total), NED was launched in 2019 and has transformed the approach to legal deposit in Australia. Publishers now have a single point of deposit to fulfil their national obligations and nominate public access conditions. Libraries have a far more efficient means of processing, managing, sharing and preserving electronic publications. Most importantly, Australians have much better access to their own digital documentary heritage for the long term.


Dutch Digital Heritage Network

An increasing number of collections of archives, libraries, media, museums and knowledge institutions are being made available online and in digital formats. Only by working together we can make optimum use of our digital collections and keep them accessible. To enable this, institutions and partnerships in the heritage sector need knowledge, services and facilities that can be shared. The Dutch Digital Heritage Network (DDHN) was set up to meet this goal and support this paradigm shift by becoming the meeting, coordination and collaboration point that makes this all possible.
