Digital Projects Toolkit Part 5: Storage and Digital Preservation is the last in a series of five short courses introducing the basics of cultural heritage digitization projects. This section covers best practices for file naming, storage recommendations, procedures for ensuring the authenticity of digital content, and a brief introduction to key concepts in digital preservation.
This series was created by Recollection Wisconsin to help public library systems provide basic digitization education and support to their members. Course development was funded by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC). Support for Recollection Wisconsin is provided in part by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
