The process of maintaining, in a condition suitable for use, materials produced in digital formats, including preservation of the
bit stream and the continued ability to render or display the content represented by the bit stream. The task is compounded by
the fact that some digital storage media deteriorate quickly ("bit rot"), and the digital object is inextricably entwined with its
access environment (software and hardware), which is evolving in a continuous cycle of innovation and obsolescence. Also
refers to the practice of digitizing materials originally produced in non-digital formats (print, film, etc.) to prevent permanent
loss due to deterioration of the physical medium.
the process of converting, creating and maintaining books, art works, historical documents, photos, journals etc, in electronic
representation so they can be viewed via computer and other devices.
