"We are pleased to announce the release of a new Exposure draft:

Managing digitisation programs and projects 

http://www.records.nsw.gov.au/recordkeeping/government-recordkeeping-manual/guidance/guidelines/managing-digitisation-programs-and-projects/new-draft-guidance-on-digitisation"

 

 

 

"The digitisation guidance is divided into two guidelines:

1. business process digitisation programs, i.e. ongoing routine digitisation for daily business use, and

2. back-capture digitisation projects, i.e. retrospective or project-based digitisation of existing paper records.

Each guideline can be read as a whole, or you can go to individual sections to learn more about particular topics, e.g. metadata requirements, technical specifications etc. The Planning for digitisation section of each guideline provides a summary of the issues you need to consider.

In addition, the guidance includes Frequently asked questions, a Glossary, a Bibliography and Digitisation case studies."
