PERSIST Selection Guidelines for sustainable digital preservation

The UNESCO PERSIST Project has launched The UNESCO/PERSIST Guidelines for the selection of digital heritage for long-term preservation in 2016. The Guidelines provide an overarching starting point for heritage institutions when drafting their own policies on the selection of digital heritage for long-term sustainable digital preservation. The guidelines are available in five languages.

Starting point

We encourage everyone to use the Guidelines as a starting point for the institutional policies. The Guidelines target institutions, professionals and administrators on every level and in every region of the world in order to review existing material for selection, highlight important issues, and offer guidance when drafting institutional policies, they were written by a team of seven authors from the libraries, archives, and museums community.

Feedback

If you do use the Guidelines, we would very much appreciate any feedback you have in order to improve them and make the truly usable for all communities.
