New York State Archives: Imaging Production Guidelines

As the e-mail message said, "The frequently mentioned but rarely seen Imaging Production Guidelines finally exist on the web!" These guidelines have been in the works for more than two years. Along the way, other things took precedence, but now the guidelines are completed. As the web site says:

These guidelines list the minimal standards for producing and inspecting digital images of records. Where applicable, these guidelines follow national digital imaging standards and industry practices. All references to industry standards (ANSI, AIIM, etc.) are to the latest revision thereof.

The guidelines are available here.

Thanks to Geof Huth, Michael Martin and whomever else helped to make these guidelines a reality. I know they will be important to those in NYS who are managing government records, as well as others who are seeking guidance in this area.
