Seeking Comment on Migration Checklist | The Signal

The NDSA Infrastructure Working Group’s goals are to identify and share emerging practices around the development and maintenance of tools and systems for the curation, preservation, storage, hosting, migration, and similar activities supporting the long term preservation of digital content. One of the ways the IWG strives to achieve their goals is to collaboratively develop and publish technical guidance documents about core digital preservation activities. The NDSA Levels of Digital Preservation and the Fixity document are examples of this.

The latest addition to this guidance is a migration checklist. The IWG would like to share a draft of the checklist with the larger community in order to gather comments and feedback that will ultimately make this a better and more useful document. We expect to formally publish a version of this checklist later in the Fall, so please review the draft below and let us know by October 15, 2015.
