Producing online digital collections is only the tip of the iceberg, and many administrators are unaware of the need for preparation of content for long term access. When developing work flows and procedures for online delivery, we often overlook critical choices that could severely impact our ability to prepare our content for long-term availability. This paper highlights primary considerations beyond the standards selected for descriptive metadata or digital capture, and describes work flow processes for adapting typical CONTENTdm or other collections for long-term preservation.
