This work aims to verify the application of digital preservation strategies in the documents produced and/or received in the Department of Education s Center for Arts and Letters from the Federal University of Santa Maria. Thus, the study was based on the query works, articles and related material on the subject of study. We also applied the technique of observation with the aid of a script, which was applied in all departments of the Center for Teaching Arts and Letters and the translation of data and information resulting from studies produced data sheets and graphs. From the analysis of surveys, reports and this observation, we have reached conclusions. One is that digital preservation is a constant risk control, in which the recognition that losses are inevitable develops the relevance of the ways to avoid them. Moreover, there is a consensus on the best strategies and methodologies to be employed in a digital preservation plan, since no measure is capable of meeting all requirements of all digital documents. However, the more the management of electronic documents is as standards, the more likely the sustainability of digital heritage. Although the knowledge and experience that exist today are not able to guarantee the durability of needed. These findings have allowed, at the end of the work, a handbook with recommendations for preservation of digital documents. It is expected therefore that the results obtained in the study can be considered as a reference for both the UFSM, and for other institutions who are interested in this work.
