One of the tasks the Digital Preservation Task Force is charged with is raising awareness about digital preservation initiatives. To that end, the Task Force has created three reference guides:
- Digital Preservation 101
- Guide to the Keepers Registry
- Talking Points and Questions to Ask Publishers about Digital Preservation
The Guides are intended to be a jumping off point for further research and discovery about digital preservation. Digital Preservation 101 is a broad introduction to digital preservation, lists relevant digital preservation initiatives, and links to several other applicable resources. The Guide to the Keepers Registry provides insight into how you may begin evaluating the preservation status of the digital scholarship in your collection. Talking Points and Questions to Ask Publishers about Digital Preservation offers direction about how to include digital preservation in conversations with your publishers and vendors.
Please share these guides with your colleagues. The Task Force welcomes any feedback or suggestions. Please email the committee at: email@example.com
