SPEC Kit 325: Digital Preservation · 25
We have consulted the CDL document SIP; ICPSR Workshop 2008 (week long) on digital preservation attended by our
Metadata Librarian, books and articles such as Borghoff, Rodig, et al. “Long-term Digital Preservation,” etc.
We used the TRAC document, OAIS, DRAMBORA, as well as the policies from peer institutions such as the University of
Michigan to guide the development of our digital preservation policies.
We used/use Library of Congress Digital Preservation guides, compared policies and procedures with University of
Pennsylvania digital preservation labs. Some digital preservation standards have been vetted with LoC members,
presented at conferences, and reviewed with moving image archivist professionals through AMIA.
We will benchmark/consult with other peer institutions as we develop our digital preservation policies.
We will look at a variety of current practices and policies, don’t have a speciﬁc set to mention.
Workshops, conferences, Internet resources, other institutional resources.
