Building A Sustainable Model for Digital Preservation Services Clive Billenness Programme Manager - Planets
Digital Preservation is a long-term project So service provision must also be long-term • Holders of digital archives must have confidence in the long-term effectiveness of their investment in preservation services • Holders of digital archives must have confidence in the long-term operational and financial stability of the preservation services with which they engage
Service Provision must be flexible and resilient • Holders of digital archives are unlikely to be willing to entrust the long-term preservation of their holdings to a single supplier or service provider • There must be the capacity to interact with new formats with minimum difficulty
Service Provision must be low-risk • Holders of digital archives are unlikely to be willing to be early adopters of untried technology • All offerings must be supported by evidence of effectiveness and established use at a similar scale elsewhere
Service provision must reflect users’ needs • Users must feel they are participants in the development of digital preservation services • Users must be able to share their unique knowledge about digital preservation
Service provision must embrace all parts of the digital preservation community • Important to work with: – Digital Content Holders – Hardware / Software suppliers – Preservation service providers – Digital Repositories
Service provision must provide an opportunity for growth • Important to create an environment which fosters new services and new service providers • Give space to grow • Different forms of engagement
Different Service Models • Partnership • Club ‘membership’ ) Group or • Subscription ) Invididual Institution • Menu pricing • Pay-as-you-go
