A3. Digitization Policies

A clear policy should be a key component of a digitization project. Some elements to consider when creating your policy include:

  • Description of digitization activities and the management of digitization projects;
  • Description of digital objects, file types and file formats for both preservation and access;
  • Description of metadata schema(s);
  • Definition of essential characteristics of the original (i.e. curatorial, archival, technical);
  • Description of approach and quality levels for digitization.
