North Carolina shares digital preservation tips

The North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources’ State Library and State Archives (Cultural Resources) have a new website designed to guide local and state government employees who are responsible for the preservation of North Carolina state public records.

The site has resources that can help North Carolina government employees — and those responsible for digital information in general — learn how to ensure that today’s digital information is saved so that it can become tomorrow’s heritage.

The site includes tutorials that explain what digital preservation is and why it is important; a checklist of key digital preservation practices; “quick tips,” advanced tutorials, and more.

While the site is directed toward North Carolina public servants, it is general enough to be useful to those considering, implementing, or teaching on the topic.

Thanks and hat tip to Lisa A. Gregory, Digital Projects Liaison, Digital Information Management Program, State Library of North Carolina, NC Department of Cultural Resources, and the Bestpractices mailing list (
