The Digital Preservation Policy for Wales

This policy has been produced by Archives and Records Council Wales in recognition of the significant strategic challenge digital preservation presents to organisations in Wales currently creating records, and to the archive services which are responsible for their permanent preservation. The proper care and management of digital records requires additional resource and new skills which are frequently not available within individual institutions, and where a collaborative approach is to be recommended.
