Steps in a Digital Preservation Workflow

by Bill LeFurgy, Digital Initiative Project Manager with the Library of Congress, National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program.

“This presentation will outline generic considerations and processes for building and managing a digital preservation workflow. We will consider the workflow within the larger context of a digital content life cycle, which runs from information creation through to ongoing discovery and access. We will focus upon generalized steps institutions can use to acquire, preserve and serve content. The presentation will describe distinct workflow stages in conjunction with sample procedures, policies, tools and services, stressing the dynamic nature of workflows over time, including the use of modular components and ongoing work to enhance automation and cope with issues of scale.”
