After a thorough appraisal of the digital content you have and will be acquiring, you will need to select the content you will manage and preserve. As part of this process, you should assess your institutional and departmental mission statements and determine if the content in question fits within your mission. You will also need to determine if the content has value to your institution, if it's feasible to preserve the content, and if you can provide reliable access of the content to your users. Once you have determined what content you will accept and process, document the selection choices you have made as well as who is permitted access to the content.
