Prepare Records for Transfer

Records can be found in either tangible or digital formats. Examples of tangible formats include, but are not limited to, paper-based documents and photographs, and removable media such as thumb drives, floppy disks, and CDs. Digital records most often refer to records that can be viewed on a screen. These exist either because a digital version has been made from paper (“digitized”) or because they were originally created in a digital form (“born-digital”).
