Please describe the other stage of development.
Digital preservation policy for local digital repository has been approved.
I am making ad hoc decisions about what to formally preserve at this time.
It is selective, i.e., to a relatively high stage in a digital asset agreement form for digital projects, but still in discussion for
all digital assets needing preservation.
Local digital projects in discussion; licensed materials preserved via protocols also in discussion.
Nothing exists locally.
Of course, this is only true of the highest-level digital preservation policies, not the policy surrounding the technical
speciﬁcations of the proposed program.
Repository dependent. Some are more far along than others. There is no library-wide digipres policy as of now.
The Digital Preservation Decision Tool has been approved, but we are in the process of moving to a new digital
preservation system, Rosetta, and a new records management program, Filenet.
Written and approved at a broad level as part of a general preservation policy. Due to be reviewed and updated.
