NASIG Announces Release of Model Digital Preservation Policy
From a NASIG Blog Post:
NASIG’s Digital Preservation Committee is pleased to announce publication of the NASIG Model Digital Preservation Policy, an important new tool designed to help you measure, grow, and publicize your organization’s commitment to preserving its scholarship. It includes advice on identifying and taking first steps, more advanced options and activities, and opportunities to share and refine professional experiences. Developed in informal collaboration with the Library Publishing Coalition and the Society for Scholarly Publishing, the model policy is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
With publication of the model policy, NASIG continues to deliver on its strategic vision of supporting development of information and tools that benefit the scholarly information community. The NASIG Model Digital Preservation Policy complements other publications including its well-regarded Core Competencies for Scholarly Communication Librarians, Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians, and Core Competencies for Print Serials Management.
