The Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS) was formed by Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) in 1995. The strategy seeks to:
- develop and maintain standards, policies and tools to create, manage, transfer and access digital records
- address the need for a cost-effective, long-term approach to the preservation of digital records.
See History for VERS for further information.
VERS Standard and tools
PROV has revised the Standard supporting VERS, therefore there are currently two versions.
The VERS Standard page provides further guidance as to which of the two versions agencies should be focusing on. This pages also provides VERS encapsulation object (VEO) toolkits and additional technical support material for the two versions of the standard.
VERS Compliant Products
PROV has prepared a list of VERS Compliant Products that meet the requirements of one or more of the Specifications under the VERS Standard.
