  • UNC is in the process of more formally and expansively defining all of these things (including the traditional collection dev policies!). We do have some early text for the digital side but are revisiting more holistically.The repository likely isn’t *everything* digital, leaving out (for example) ebooks and licensed databases. Want to be influenced by existing collection approaches, but allow us to take advantage of technological opportunities to expand these where appropriate.Biggest lesson is to have digital preservation policies informed by collection policies. Match preservation actions to defined need for the content.
  • These have been separate repositories in many places over the last 10-15 years. At UNC, we’re well-positioned to push them into the same repository for preservation purposes. This makes an intelligible access strategy even more critical, however.
  • DuraCloud – ex of farming out the storage, keeping the management.HT – ex of farming out both storage and management.IA – for both web harvesting output and digitized books. But do we trust their preservation services?These decisions are made fundamentally through trust.
