ArchivEra enabled Ms. Wise and her colleague to harness the collections before the move.

Digital Sustainability: The Archivist’s Path Forward
Read an archives whitepaper written by expert, consultant, author, and Lucidea guest-blogger, Margot Note. Keys to Digital Sustainability: The Archivist’s Path Forward offers expert guidance on how to ensure archives’ digital sustainability by going beyond traditional archival methods to save digital assets— whether they are born digital or digitized.
Per Ms. Note, “A sustainable approach to archives recognizes that the technologies used today are not permanent solutions, but merely tools that archivists and users will use to facilitate access in the future. Digital sustainability plans for future access and use, but also recognizes the exigencies of current demands within archival repositories.”
