Developing a Digital Preservation Policy (Draft)

Introduction and Audience

This guide explains the functions and importance of a digital preservation policy. It discusses why there is a need for a policy and how it supports digital preservation within an archive.

The primary audience for this guidance is publicly funded archives addressed in the government policy on archives, “Archives for the 21st Century”1. Other archives will also find this guidance useful in developing a policy for digital preservation. This includes archives held by institutions, organisations, groups, communities, families and individuals.
