Move Up to Level 1:
Develop/update an inventory of file formats in the Archives by collection or record type. Assign a team to review the inventory against good practice guidance. If the Archives does not currently have digital collections, consider piloting the inventory with a single agency, division, or department.
Conduct a survey or outreach effort to agency records managers and IT professionals to develop a list of enterprise and agency records systems and the formats in use for permanent government records. Consult with IT (state/territory or third party) who manage electronic records storage media to discuss best practices and plans to address technology obsolescence for permanent records collections.
