The infokit is presented in four main sections, in line with the digitisation life-cycle.
This infokit aims to provide an overview of the considerations involved with high-level digitisation; technical advice relating to the digitisation and care of specific media formats; and advice on equipment. It is aimed at all levels of staff involved in high-level digitisation (HLD) with sections dedicated to addressing managerial and project level issues as well as advice on the practical and more technical elements of digitisation.
There may be occasions when working with at-risk media feels like treading water. However, it is imperative to follow a strict and consistent approach in terms of technical specifications and standards in order to create digital formats that meet your intended archival purposes. Failure to do so may jeopardise a digitisation project and put preservation and long-term access to your resources at risk.
