Life-cycle management of digital data: Preservation Reformatting Division, Library of Congress

Copyright (c) 2001 Library of Congress

Abstract: From the Website: The life-cycle management of digital data is often referred to as "digital preservation." Because the term "digital preservation" can have multiple meanings, including ones as contrasting as the preservation of digital data and the use of digital technology to preserve analog data, "life-cycle management" is intentionally used in the Preservation Digital Reformatting Program to refer specifically to the progressive technology and workflow requirements needed to ensure long-term sustainability of and accessibility to digital objects and/or metadata.
