As part of Plugged in Powered Up, we have commissioned guidance on digital preservation workflows. In this guidance, a workflow is a number of connected steps that need to be followed from start to finish in order to complete a process. The guidance aims to support archives in the UK to move into active digital preservation work by providing those who look after archives with:
- Practical examples of workflows for managing born digital content, which you can change and use in your own organisation
- Actions for how to process and preserve born digital content, including using free software
You do not need a significant level of digital preservation knowledge in order to follow the guidance and key terminology is explained in the glossary.
Further guidance on digital collections can be found on our Preserving digital collections webpages.
