Our documentary heritage is created in many formats, from traditional paper-based documents to electronic media, magnetic tape, photographic images. Media in all formats become vulnerable to deterioration, improper handling and poor storage.
New formats are constantly being developed to carry data. Inscription to the MOW Register supports continued access to information and ongoing preservation in the most appropriate manner. The MOW Committee can provide advice when assessing nominations.
