With the rapid growing of information technology, thousands of born and derived electronic records such as audio, video, document files are generated and collected each day in National Archives Administration (NAA), Taiwan, R.O.C. In order to properly preserve those cultural, historical electronic records in a long term fashion, NAA launched a National Records Digitization Service Program in 2008. In this program, NAA closely cooperated with universities and research institutes and established governance, guidelines, standards, and utility programs. Based on the first phase achievement, the Preserving Electronic Archives and Records Laboratory (PEARL) was established in 2010 and an open source technology platform was developed to assist NAA and other organizations, such as government agencies, universities, and private organizations, to migrate and manage electronic records in a unified manner. PEARL also provides media migration services to help our clients to digitize or migrate vinyl, tapes, films, slides, and micro films. A full-day training course is provided each year since 2010. Up till now, more than 500 archivists or IT personnel participated the course. PEARL also engage in the international cooperation, visitors from more than 20 countries or regions have visited our Lab. Currently, we are working on a research project about how to apply the artificial intelligence/machine learning techniques to promote the advanced usages of electronic records.
