Fixity Working Group

The Fixity Working Group was established May 31, 2016 as a joint collaboration of the Standards & Practices Interest Group and the Infrastructure Interest Group in order to move forward with reccomendations from the Fixity Guidance Report and the NDSA National Agenda. The Fixity Working Group is currently working to address the “… clear need for use-case driven examples of best practices for fixity in particular system designs and configurations established to meet particular preservation requirements” raised in the 2015 NDSA National Agenda.
