Innovation and research

All archives globally have been responding to the challenges of preserving, managing and providing access to digital records.

To help us meet these challenges, we actively research and seek out opportunities to improve and embed digital archiving best practices into our work. We do this by:

  • maintaining awareness of emerging developments in digital archival practice
  • engaging with the local and international digital archiving community
  • exploring policies and techniques to support long-term preservation and access to digital material
  • building digital archiving capability within the organisation.
