As you know Archives New Zealand is now accepting digital transfers.
In the light of the recent interest in checksums, here is a revised version of the blog originally published last year.
Archives New Zealand released the first version of its Digital Transfer Readiness Characteristics guidance in October 2016.
Archives New Zealand’s tools for digital preservation come from a variety of sources and where possible are open-source and/or community driven, proven, and best-of-breed.
Did you know that the beautiful marbling on the edges of index and register books, like the one pictured, has a purpose?
Currently, Archives New Zealand openly accepts and encourages the transfer of all kinds of files, formats, and information; we do not prescribe one file format over another, nor do we require any particular type!
