HES Archives: Digital Repository Management Policies

Front cover of HES Archives: Digital Repository Management Policies

HES has been actively developing a Digital Repository to ensure the long-term preservation of contemporary records which illustrate or document the historic environment of Scotland. This is essential for the survival of unique digital records and for the continuing development and currency of the HES Archive. Digital records contribute to telling Scotland’s story but will also provide sources of information for future generations.

HES Archives: Digital Repository management policies sets out the purpose, guiding principles and operational policies for the Digital Repository. These will be reviewed every 3 years.
