Digitizing - Identify

An important part of managing your digital collections is identifying everything that you are working with. This includes identifying what digital content you have, what you are already preserving, and what content you may be acquiring. You will also need to identify the file formats you have and assess the risk associated with these formats.

 

Take action

  • Identify the content you have, what you are already preserving, and what content you may be acquiring
  • Identify the digital file formats you will be collecting and assess risks associated with these file formats
  • Use file format identification tools to identify file formats you already have in your collection
  • Record date information such as the date the files were received, file creation date, and the date the file was last updated
