MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS: Release of Digitization Quality Management Guide

I am pleased to announce the release of the Digitization Quality Management Guide. This guide provides detailed information about the various aspects of quality management (QM) in digitization, including quality assurance and quality control, as well as the role of objective testing and automation in optimizing quality control and inspection processes.

This guide supports the National Archives and Records Administration's (NARA) regulations concerning digitization standards for permanent records (36 CFR 1236 Subpart E) and digitization standards for temporary records (36 CFR 1236 Subpart D). 

If you have questions or comments about this guidance, please contact rmstandards@nara.gov.
