Next steps for moving towards preservation
- Start documenting policy decisions. This page, its siblings, and its children are good starting points.
- As we make decisions, determine what documents we should sort the decisions into, and what person/group should manage each document.
- Determine who should be invited to join a "repository policy group". This group should meet regularly to ensure that policies meet the needs of the repository's users, and ensure that policies are being followed.
RLG "Trusted Digital Repository"
The most important document related to preservation is RLG's Audit Checklist for the Certification of Trusted Digital Repositories. While this checklist is a good place to start working on our preservation system, we won't treat it as a mandate.
Melanie Schlosser has started a workspace to organized the items on the checklist and document how the current DLP activities relate to them.
