The North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources' State Library and State Archives have created a new website to guide local and state government employees responsible for the preservation of North Carolina's public record. The site, Digital Preservation Education for NC State Government Employees, provides specific preservation information for North Carolina government employees as well as helpful resources for anyone interested in digital information preservation.
The website offers tutorials that explain what digital preservation is and why it is important. There is also a checklist of key digital preservation practices to help integrate digital preservation activities into day-to-day workflows. For those already incorporating digital preservation into their daily work, the website provides more advanced guidance, including "quick tips," tutorials, and research projects to watch.
