Digital Archives migration methodology released as exposure draft September 26, 2013

The Digital Archives migration methodology has been released as an exposure draft and is available on the State Records website. The Digital Archives project team has been developing the migration methodology to establish a means of managing transfers of digital records required as State archives to the Digital Archives.

In previous Future Proof updates the project team advised that transfers to the Digital Archives would be managed as migrations and outlined the challenges of migrating business systems. The migration methodology provides a structured framework to manage these migrations as projects.

Development of the methodology has focused on producing an adaptable, flexible and scalable model that can be used to manage different types of migration scenarios to the Digital Archives repository.

Comment on the migration methodology is sought during the exposure draft release. The deadline for submitting comments is Friday 25 October. Comments can be submitted via email to Paul Elliott, Project Officer Digital Archives:
