Along with tips and advice about best practices, the Toolkit & Guide include templates that can be downloaded, adapted, and used to create inventories, labels, data sheets, and other documentation. Links take users to other vetted sources of information about digital preservation, disaster planning, and other key topics.
The development of these resources was supported by generous funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
