Abstract

As universities begin to address their first significant collections of electronic records, the needs of the collections often outstrip the resources and support available. This poster will illustrate the steps taken to transition and preserve a presidential electronic records collection into an university archives with limited systems support and preparation for future preservation needs. The infrastructure created was designed to quickly ingest at-risk records and allow for file migration and system evolution as future technologies are implemented.
