This webinar will address the scope of digital content potentially available at an institution, as well as the process for selecting digital content for preservation. The scope of content will include digital content currently in the custody of a cultural heritage institution and digital content that has been or will be created in the future. The process for selecting digital content for preservation may be known by different terms in institutions, e.g., appraisal in archives, selection in libraries, or acquisition in museums, but there are common principles and outcomes that may be applied across all types of institutions.
Other webinars in this series include:
