Preservation of electronic records is at the very heart of 21st-century records management. Retaining the functionality of these records and access to the information they contain over time is a daunting challenge. Understanding format options for the electronic records our governments create is critical to successful use and preservation of these digital assets. This webinar will review the latest preservation formats for records from PDFs to video recordings, digital photographs to databases. We will also explore a bit of preservation theory and practical strategies to get you started. Our objective is to present this information in a way that will be comprehensible to all, spiced with just enough techie jargon to add a little flavor.
