Electronic Records Resources

Self-assessments completed by every state and territory in May-June 2012 and again in 2015 helped determine the current status of each state's electronic records and digital preservation program and identify where individual states should focus attention to continue to move forward. The Digital Preservation Capability Maturity Model (DPCMM), developed by Charles Dollar and Lori Ashley, provides a simplified framework for two ISO standards, the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) Reference Model and Audit and Certification of Trustworthy Digital Repositories, using 15 basic components to evaluate digital preservation elements, and offering a progressive scoring system through each component. The DPCMM is available on an ongoing basis to state and territorial archives for continued monitoring of progress toward more comprehensive electronic records programs. Grant funds from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) supported the development of the Self-Assessment tool.
