Trustworthy Digital Repositories Documentation
What is a Trustworthy Digital Repository?
It is extremely important that local infrastructure support the goal of long-term stewardship of important digital objects and information. Trustworthy Digital Repository (TDR) specifications were developed as a standardized means of assuring the readiness of an organization to undertake long-term digital preservation. It looks at all aspects of an institution's infrastructure, in order to anticipate the repository's level of preservation readiness.
The documentation below provides information about the Indiana University Libraries repository infrastructure, organized based on the TDR specification.
