Abstract

Awareness and implementation of appropriate quality assurance procedures at each stage in the process of digital preservation is vital for achieving the goals of long-term access and integrity of electronic information, and maximising the return on the high levels of investment being made in digital preservation. This paper outlines the four stages of quality assurance within the digitisation process suggested in the UK by the JISC QA Focus, and identifies issues to be considered at each stage.
