The Library of Congress Recommends Preservation Formats

The Library of Congress Recommends Preservation Formats...by Roy Tennant

The Library of Congress has now made specific recommendations on the best file formats for preserving access to content of various types:

  • Textual works and musical compositions
  • Still images
  • Audio
  • Moving images
  • Software, electronic games, and learning modules
  • Datasets and databases

They take pains to explain that these recommendations are not meant to replace their pre-existing “Best Edition” of Published Copyright Works document, AKA “Best Edition Statement”, but rather builds upon and complements that work.
