While digitization is not a digital preservation plan, methods used to execute digitization work can support future preservation efforts. Our approach in supporting digital preservation work is to conduct image analysis of the camera and resulting images to ensure FADGI compliance. Ensuring the quality of our preservation files increases the reliability of their survival in a digital preservation storage environment. This presentation covers how to use device and object level targets during the imaging process, what the importance of those targets are, and how exactly they're used to analyze the quality and accuracy of a camera's output. Running images through the Golden Thread software results in many points of data that enable us to understand our output from a scientific perspective. We will demonstrate how we review our analysis results and determine the necessary adjustments to make in our capture process for true FADGI compliance.
