This session presents principles and practices for both media preservation programs and media digitization operations. Emerging from the work of the Media Digitization and Preservation Initiative at Indiana University and its planning forerunner known as the Media Preservation Initiative, these principles have contributed to the development of workflows and program-level decisions at IU. This work is closely connected to IASA-TC 03, although this set makes the principles more explicit, explores issues at both the program and digitization levels, and digs deeper in some areas by addressing specific details of digitization. A principle may be defined as a fundamental or general truth, concept or value that is a guide for behavior or evaluation. Principles govern the development of specific policies or practices employed within the space that they represent. This presentation will feature real world examples to illustrate how principles and practices may be applied within a preservation program or a digitization operation, whether attached to an institution or part of the services offered by a vendor.
