New eArchiving guidelines published for community feedback

The Digital Information LifeCycle Interoperability Standards Board (DILCIS Board) are seeking reviewers for eArchiving guidelines complementing the specifications.

Originally created by the E-ARK project, these specifications are a core component of the CEF eArchiving Building Block. The aim of eArchiving is to provide the core specifications, software, training and knowledge to help data creators, software developers and digital archives tackle the challenge of short, medium and long-term data management and reuse in a sustainable, authentic, cost-efficient, manageable and interoperable way.

The specifications and documents for review are being released in four groups over 2020-2021. The third group of documents available for review are:

  • Guideline eHealth1
  • Guideline ERMS
  • Guideline SIARD
  • Guideline using GitHub in the eArchiving Building Block

How do I provide feedback?

Please provide feedback through the DILCIS Board website review page. All of the specifications, procedures and guidelines are listed by group, with a short description, a link to the full document, and a set of questions to answer.


If you have any queries regarding the review process please contact the DILCIS Board: [email protected].


The deadline for feedback is 16 May 2021.
