want to use the registry should be aware of the criteria, for including
digital material in the registry.
|•Material must be digitized according to documented
standards and best practices;
|•Must reside in professionally-managed storage
|•the organization must have an intent to preserve the
digital material for the long term (decades or centuries – people will, we
hope, come to rely on this, so it represents a long-term commitment ); and
|•there must be a use copy of the digital resource available
to the general public, though the use copy need not be free.
|A registry record
contains information about the digital master and the use copy.
