Introduction to Digital Preservation: File Storage

Introduction to Digital Preservation: File Storage

Resources to understand storage media, backups, and security.

A good first step in understanding digital preservation is learning about storage media options available and recommended ways to back up digital content.

Next, assess what is in place already. It is vital to understand how digital content is currently backed up, what storage media is used, what safety and security measures are in place, and which staff members or departments are responsible for managing these backups.

These resources provide an introduction to storage media and best practices.
