Notes

Abstract: Digital preservation is not just a technical issue: there are also many organizational implications that must be addressed. This essay first identifies requirements that distinguish successful from unsuccessful modes of organizing digital preservation and long-term access, then presents a series of case studies that examine examples of addressing those requirements. These case studies all represent cooperative or collaborative approaches, in keeping with current research that demonstrates that institutions must share the financial and organizational burden of digital preservation in order to make it cost-effective. The case studies are drawn both from Europe and the United States, and include both single repository solutions and distributed preservation networks. A special role is played by so-called "enabling institutions" - national or regional initiatives established to raise awareness of the issues and promote cooperation in research and development. The essay concludes by considering possible areas for community alignment and next steps.
