Creekside Digital is the nation's expert provider of scanning and validation services compliant with the FADGI guidelines and NARA's regulations for the digitization of permanent Federal records.

 OVERVIEW: Are you planning an upcoming digitization project? Are you concerned about the upcoming NARA / OMB M-19-21 deadline and its effects on your agency’s permanent analog records? Have you already digitized your permanent records, but you’re not sure if they’re compliant with all, some, or any of M-19-21’s more technical requirements? Fear not, NAGARA members!

During this presentation, Creekside Digital’s Jim Studnicki discuss Creekside Digital’s standards-compliant still image digitization services in detail, with a focus on supported materials and formats as well as ensuring compliance against the upper levels of FADGI and all parts of M-19-21 for permanent records.  Jim also gives the NAGARA community a sneak peek at Creekside Digital’s upcoming Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution for comprehensive, on-demand, massively scalable FADGI and M-19-21 compliance auditing, and discuss Creekside Digital’s plans to publish and open-source sample Statements of Work and accompanying machine-readable digitization project specifications for use by records managers and archival workers across the nation and beyond.  These specs can be used to ensure that if you vend out your digitization to Creekside Digital or any other vendor (or choose to do it yourself), you will get what you need -- measurable quality and verified compliance with the requisite regulations – as well as maximum value for dollar and properly digitized, validated assets that support all use cases now and far into the future.
