Definition

  • From OAIS

The Preservation Planning entity provides the services and functions for monitoring the environment of the OAIS, providing recommendations and preservation plans to ensure that the information stored in the OAIS remains accessible to, and understandable by, the Designated Community over the Long Term, even if the original computing environment becomes obsolete.

  • From IJDC

Refer: http://dx.doi.org/10.2218/ijdc.v3i1.42

Preservation can be thought of as communication with the future. Information that is understood today is transmitted to an unknown system in the future where it will be interpreted and displayed. The future system may have not only different hardware and software, but also different standards for encoding information.
