Since 2009, the Archives and Records Council Wales (ARCW) Digital Preservation Working Group has been working to address the requirements for the preservation and management of digital records across Wales. The objective is to support digital preservation in a collaborative manner, whilst taking account of individual organisational imperatives.
The project has already made significant progress towards this aim and has developed a workflow which manages digital content from deposit by the partners to preservation and access. The next stage is to transition to a longer term sustainable service offer. Development is being led by the National Library of Wales with project staff supported by funding from the Welsh Government.
The Digital Preservation Working Group have also produced a Digital Preservation Policy for Wales, and this was launched on International Digital Preservation Day in November 2017.
