Creating and Keeping your Digital Treasures

Working with digital objects such as Word files and photographs has become a part of daily life for almost everyone. The State Library has recently completed a document which may be of interest to you in creating and maintaining digital objects for the long term.

‘Creating and Keeping Your Digital Treasures: A User Guide’ provides guidelines on quality, file formats and best practice for creating, naming and storing digital objects. The guide has been written for a non-technical audience and is based on the minimum file format and quality standards at the State Library. We hope this document proves to be useful for anyone who collects digital objects, from individuals creating personal collections of digital photographs to to organisations building their own digital archives.

The document is freely downloadable via our website

We would appreciate your feedback on the document. An online feedback form is available to collect your responses

The form should take no more than five to ten minutes to complete.

This form will be available until 27 March 2009 after which you are welcome to comment using our standard feedback form (, or by emailing
