Digital Migration[edit]

"The transfer of digital information, while intending to preserve it, within the OAIS. It is distinguished from transfers in general by three attributes:

– a focus on the preservation of the full information content;

– a perspective that the new archival implementation of the information is a replacement for the old; and

– an understanding that full control and responsibility over all aspects of the transfer resides with the OAIS." (OAIS, p.1-10, Section 1.7.2)
