New and updated digital transfer guidance

Following completion of the first end-to-end born-digital transfer in August 2017, Archives New Zealand has updated existing guidance and released new material.

Digital transfer - overview 

Digital transfer initiation - characteristics

Digital transfer initiation - readiness assessment

These tools and methods will assist public sector organisations during the transfer initiation stage of a digital transfer, and also assist Archives New Zealand to determine the transfer’s feasibility and timing.
