In “In the Beginning,” we reviewed the importance of effective identification and preservation as well as the triggers for doing so. In “Legal and Technological Scope,” we reviewed the scope of what must be identified and preserved. In “Imagining the Possibilities,” we reviewed the first steps for identification. In this Part, we discuss the investigative aspects of identification.
As we noted in the last part, the identification process breaks down into two parts: imagination and investigation. Now that you have completed your initial brainstorming of potential materials, properties, and people, you are ready to begin the investigation part of identification.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
