  Migrate to sustainable formats

  • Receive assistance with migrating physical or digital objects to a digital format more appropriate for preservation.
  • Legacy Archival Media Migration Platform (LAMMP): A largely automated process that uses a custom workstation to rescue potentially valuable digital content from rapidly aging digital media formats (e.g. floppy disks, CD-ROM, etc.)
  • File Format Migration: Formats are most likely to be accessible in the future when they are widely used as well as open, meaning the technical specifications of the file format are well documented and open to all. Some recommended open and well-documented formats:
    • text: Adobe PDF (.pdf), Comma-Separated values (.csv), Plain Text (.txt), XML (.xml), Rich text Format (.rtf)
    • image: TIFF (.tif, .tiff), jpeg (.jpg, .jpeg), gif (.gif)
    • audio: AIFF (.aif), Wave (.wav)
    • video: AVI (.avi), mpeg4 High Profile (.mp4)
