nestor Memorandum

This memorandum is based on the work and experience of project partners, on contributions from scientists, a survey in German archives, libraries and museums and on the ideas of a public discussion in the Federal Archive in Koblenz in February 2006. 18 principles in the attached memorandum built a German "Long-term preservation policy" in the areas of "Responsibility for long-term preservation of digital information," "Selection, availability and access", "Technical measures" and "Networking and professionalisation".
