The Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) The Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) was founded in 2007 as a collaborative effort by different federal agencies in the United States to articulate common technical guidelines, methods and practices for the archiving of digitized and born digital documents of historical and cultural importance. These standards have been given heightened urgency by the US government’s initiative to stop the flow of analog documents into the National Archives after 2022 in favor of electronic records.

Two working groups deal with the two main themes: the audiovisual and still images. With a ranking of one (low) to four (high) stars, performance parameters were created based on a comprehensive numerical analysis of the accuracy and quality of the digital copies for varying media.

The guidelines are published and updated viahttp://www.digitizationguidelines.gov/.
