Abstract

This presentation aims to demonstrate some low-cost methods for creating high-quality digital resources and maintaining them with non-specialist staff, while ensuring that they can support the widest possible range of uses beyond the immediate context of their creation. In this context, 'high-quality' refers to the characteristics of the digital resources, not the content itself. Five particularly desirable characteristics of digital collections are considered: sustainability, longevity, accessibility, interoperability and reusability.
