This presentation will discuss the importance of providing long-term access to selected digital content, understanding how to manage your digital resources, and describe how to use Rosetta software to manage file formats, digital storage, obsolescence risks, metadata, and to avoid changes to digital files. Long-term management and access is important for everyone working with digital materials to understand, not only the importance of digital preservation, but how to implement a program within your organization.

Store your digital content securely 4.) Protect your content from everyday threats (changes, obsolescence, loss, etc.) 5.) Create a preservation plan for long term management. 6.)
