Who Is Doing a Good Job? Audit and Certification

  • David GiarettaEmail author


The Preserving Digital Information report of the Task Force on Archiving of Digital Information [243] declared,
  • a critical component of digital archiving infrastructure is the existence of a sufficient number of trusted organizations capable of storing, migrating, and providing access to digital collections.

  • process of certification for digital archives is needed to create an overall climate of trust about the prospects of preserving digital information .
