Definition Edit

Preservation data is digital data (either created in digital form or digitized) for which the benefits of preservation are likely to exceed the costs (including the costs of ongoing curation, protection, dissemination, quality control and validation, and migration to new formats and technologies). Inherent in this definition is the need to conduct effective cost/benefit analyses to enable rational decisions about preservation.
