Selection/exclusion - Importance of content

Content

Given the overriding importance of the content in determining inclusion, the following criteria may assist in assessing whether a resource is worthy of selection:

  • Intellectual/research/scholarly level
  • Likelihood of being archived by another agency/trusted repository
  • Value in serving the research needs of future users
  • Creator’s/publisher’s/producer’s reputation
  • Representative of contemporary publication formats
  • Vulnerability to loss
