    • Planning a Trusted Digital Repository with PLATTER Colin Rosenthal Jan Hutař Asger Blekinge-Rasmussen Planning For Trust
    • What is a Repository? A Repository is an organisation responsible for conserving digital material. – “Conservation” implies a timescale beyond the limits of current technology – A repository is not a piece of technology – ... but it is defined by the challenge of technological change Planning For Trust
    • What is Trust? Trust is demonstrated organisational fitness for purpose. – Established as part of relationship between repository and stakeholders (funding agency, depositors, users, parent institution etc.) – A two-stage process: achieving fitness and demonstrating it – PLATTER handles the first of these (and DRAMBORA is concerned with the second) Planning For Trust
    • The Road To Trust There are no widely-accepted standards for trust! What exists are – Checklist-based standards (such as nestor and TRAC) – Flexible toolkits (i.e. DRAMBORA) – Promising standardisation initiatives (e.g. The Birds of a Feather Group) So for any repository, Goal 0 is – In consultation with stakeholders, establish criteria for trust PLATTER is a tool to steer a path towards satisfying those criteria. How do we make a planning tool when we don't what we're planning for? Planning For Trust
    • Scylla and Charybdis Over-generality Over-specificity – General-purpose – Inflexible organisational – Unrealistic planning tools expectations – Only useful with – Failure to balance prior knowledge of costs/benefits repositories – Lacking concrete advice Planning For Trust
    • Finding The Middle Way The PLATTER approach: – Define general guiding principles (for all repositories) – Use these as a basis for repository to set its own goals – Provide many examples for repositories to use, modify, or reject according to their specific mandate – Use the CRL/DCC/DPE/nestor Ten Core Principles as a starting point Planning For Trust

Is the Repository for profit or non-profit? Planning For Trust
