Introduction

During our activities in the SCAPE project concerning the creation of the Policy Framework, we collected several real life policies.  Some other sources, like the report in the Signal by M. Sheldon http://blogs.loc.gov/digitalpreservation/2013/08/analysis-of-current-digital-preservation-policies-archives-libraries-and-museums/  were also of help in creating this overview of published preservation policies.

The policies are showed in alphabetical order and divided by

  • Libraries
  • Archives
  • Data Centers
  • Miscellaneous

In practice policies are published under different headings and sometimes not all policies are also "preservation policies". Categorizing the policies to Libraries or for example Data Centers is not always as straightforward, so please look under the different headings.

Is your digital preservation policy not mentioned in this list and are you willing to share it with your colleagues, please send an email to barbara.sierman@kb.nl and we will add yours to this list.
