The Harvard University Archives has announced an ambitious goal to transition to a “digital-first” records management program by 2026. This presentation focuses on issues surrounding the long-term preservation of digital records, looking first at the technical and social infrastructure necessary to ensure effective and sustainable persistence of record accessibility, integrity, authenticity, and usability, and then, discussing how we can know whether those goals have been achieved.
