The documents below may assist GIS organizations interested in formally archiving their datasets using professional archivists’ best practices. Professional archivists' best practices are not technically complex. The most important preparation that must be completed is to inventory, organize, and document the organization's data holdings. For guidance with archiving, contact us at the Montana State Library. For assistance with writing metadata, see the Metadata Guidance page.
