Define strategies, monitor change, ensure sustainability
Preservation planning is a core function of trusted digital repositories. It defines and manages strategies for ensuring digital files are accessible and functional over the long-term. Preservation planning usually produces resources such as:
- Preservation policy
- Preservation implementation plan
- Preservation action plans
- File format policy registry
The Dalhousie Libraries' Preservation Committee is responsible for the Preservation Planning functions defined in the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) standard (ISO 14721:2012).
