Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) formed the Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS) in 1995 in response to the significant challenge of preserving digital records produced by Victorian Government agencies.
'Digital forever' is the fundamental goal of the strategy, which seeks to support agencies in managing and preserving complete, documented, and authentic digital records.
To achieve this goal, PROV has developed the following:
standards and specifications
VERS compliance program
methodologies to convert digital records into long-term formats known as VERS Encapsulated Objects (VEOs). See VEO creation for further information.
initiatives, such as research projects to explore digital recordkeeping, archiving and preservation.
