Standards and Practices Interest Group

Standards and Practices Interest Group Co-Chairs: Felicity Dykas, University of Missouri Libraries - dykasf [at] missouri [dot] edu; Linda Reynolds, Stephen F. Austin State University - lreynolds [at] sfasu [dot] edu

The Standards and Practices Interest Group works to facilitate a broad understanding of the role and benefit of standards in digital preservation and how to use them effectively to ensure durable and usable collections.

In addition, the Interest Group seeks to identify, promote and widely disseminate practices found to be effective for selecting, organizing, describing, managing, preserving and serving digital content, in collaboration with other individuals and organizations where appropriate.

Smaller working groups frequently emerge from the Standards and Practices Interest Group.
