ARC 350: Preservation of Electronic Records Workshop
With ever-changing technology and the short life expectancy of the media on which they are stored, electronic records pose a special challenge to governments' preservation. Governments' electronic records can be found not only on computer media, but also on audio tapes and videotapes. This workshop will discuss identifying and preserving these records. This workshop is typically offered in the spring.
