Digital Processing Framework
Abstract: "The Digital Processing Framework suggests a minimum processing standard for digital archival content. The framework brings together archival processing practice with digital preservation activities. Ten practitioners in the field designed this framework to be practical, usable, and adaptable to local institutional settings."
From the document: "Development of the Digital Processing Framework began after the second annual Born Digital Archiving eXchange unconference at Stanford University in 2016. There, a group of nine archivists saw a need for standardization, best practices, or general guidelines for processing digital archival materials. Members of this group were already engaged in digital processing and had knowledge and experience with acquiring, preserving, and managing born digital content but had a lot of questions about processing this type of material and making it accessible. They sought commonalities for processing digital materials and wanted to create a framework that would be extensible, flexible, useful, descriptive rather than prescriptive, and as simple as possible."
