Best Practices for Long-Term File Preservation

  • Share:
Name: Best Practices for Long-Term File Preservation
Date: April 24, 2024
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT
Event Description:

Work environments create electronic records in a variety of file formats. Over time, these formats may become obsolete or unusable, rendering these electronic records inaccessible. Monitoring and regulating the usage of file formats can help minimize the risk of records loss. Furthermore, standardizing formats reduces costs and provides a platform to better manage records over time. This work is also essential in forming a digital preservation strategy which can help ensure your records are accessible, accurate, authentic, reliable, legible, and readable throughout the record life cycle.

Join Krista Sorenson, the Electronic Records and Digital Preservation Archivist for the Wisconsin Historical Society, as she provides challenges and best practices for preserving digital files for the records life cycle.

As of 2020, Krista Sorenson serves as the Electronic Records and Digital Preservation Archivist for the Wisconsin Historical Society (WHS). In this role, she facilitates the transfer of electronic records from state and local agencies to the archive in addition to conducting processing, preservation, and access actions on collection materials. Her current interests focus on digital preservation and the development of email archiving. Prior to her start at WHS, Krista worked on digitization projects at the State Library of North Carolina and in local government records management at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

This event has been approved for 1 IGP CEU in the Information Management category.
