nestor - Guideline for Preservation Planning
nestor, the German network for digital preservation has just translated its “Guideline for Preservation Planning” into English, which is available at http://files.d-nb.de/nestor/materialien/nestor_mat_15-eng.pdf
The guideline describes a procedural model and provides information on possible forms of implementation. It serves as a theoretical and practical implementation of the "Preservation Planning" functional unit of the OAIS reference model.
The guideline takes into consideration the fact that ideal solutions are rarely attainable and focuses instead on the four conditions of financial viability, authenticity, adequacy and potential for automation.
