Guides to Good Practice

Title

Guides to Good Practice

Subject

Web Archiving

Description

This website was designed and produced by the UK Archaeology Data Service and Digital Antiquity in the US over the course of a two-year collaborative project. Designed to be a guide for good standards to follow in the world of digital archiving, it outlines what digital archiving is, the goals a project should have as well as a list of principles for archiving digital data. These outlines will help to guide and keep a new project on its feet and on the right path instead of wavering and turning to a different and unrelated purpose.
Additionally the website goes a step beyond simply giving goals and principles and gives two case studies; one in the loss of digital data and another for the study of data recovery. Both of these invaluable information for seasoned or budding archivists.
