Selecting what to keep and what to bin (Checklist)

Change log


PrePARe project team 


A checklist to help researchers make decisions about what digital material they need to keep and what they should think about discarding. Selectively disposing of files will help with finding up-to-date information, save on back-up time and cost, and is an important part of digital preservation. Available in both PDF and PowerPoint formats. This guidance developed by the JISC PrePARe project at the University of Cambridge.
