Preserving Electronic Records

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 efforts. Governments’ electronic records are found, not only on computer media, but also on audio tapes and videotapes. This presentation will be helpful for all government officials responsible for the preservation or maintenance of electronic records stored on computer media, audio tapes, and videotapes.
 
This webinar will:
 
  • Describe the different types of electronic media
  • Provide practical guidelines about various preservation techniques
  • Provide information about proper storage methodologies
  • Discuss how to maintain access to records

This webinar is produced through the State Archives Documentary Heritage and Preservation Services for New York program.
