What is a preservation plan?
What is contained in our preservation plan?
Despite being a plan to preserve files that have already been created, the document will also help when thinking about how new collections should be created. In this case, taking into account warehouses, shelves, lighting conditions, among others.
The preservation plan needs to contain a good basis for how monitoring should be done, especially to be able to act against internal or external offenders. In this case, rules are contained for the maintenance and use of files on a day-to-day basis.
Para falar em preservação, o acondicionamento não pode estar de fora das etapas principais do processo, trazendo especificações para cada tipo de arquivo, dependendo principalmente do seu tamanho e da sua natureza.
Em geral, os documentos, no momento de acondicionar, são divididos em:
- Large format documents;
- Magnetic media;
- Text documents;
- Digital documents;
One of the most important points that need to be contained in the conservation plan is degrading. That is, everything that somehow can generate a direct reaction in the documents.
Therefore, the preservation plan should contain, among other things:
- Environmental factors;
- Physical agents;
- Biological agents;
