Feedback Requested for NASIG Digital Preservation Model License

  • 1.  Feedback Requested for NASIG Digital Preservation Model License

    Posted Thu October 28, 2021 05:24 PM

    Dear Colleagues,

    I'm writing today on behalf of the NASIG Digital Preservation Committee to draw your attention to a draft model policy for digital preservation as it moves into the comment and revision stage of development. This evolving policy is a tool to publicize, measure, and grow your organization's commitment to preserving scholarship.  Whether your organization has an active preservation program, or hasn't yet taken measures to identify resources at risk, we hope the model license will provide a useful tool to strengthen future commitment and action.  To ensure digital scholarly content in all formats remains available to future users, all organizations involved in producing or disseminating scholarship have a role in digital preservation.

    The policy is available for public comment from August to November 30, 2021.
