h2. 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 recently published report in the Signal by M. Sheldon* [http://blogs.loc.gov/digitalpreservation/2013/08/analysis-of-current-digital-preservation-policies-archives-libraries-and-museums/|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.*


{color:#ff0000}{*}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 [email protected] and we will add yours to this list.*{color}
