A project update from Edith Halvarsson, Policy and Planning Fellow at Bodleian Libraries.
Bodleian Libraries’ new digital preservation policy is now available to view on our website, after having been approved by Bodleian Libraries’ Round Table earlier this year.
The policy articulates Bodleian Libraries’ approach and commitment to digital preservation:
“Bodleian Libraries preserves its digital collections with the same level of commitment as it has preserved its physical collections over many centuries. Digital preservation is recognized as a core organizational function which is essential to Bodleian Libraries’ ability to support current and future research, teaching, and learning activities.”

In other related news we are currently in the process of ratifying a GLAM (Gardens, Libraries and Museums) digital preservation strategy which is due for release after the summer. Our new digitization policy is also in the pipelines and will be made publicly available. Follow the DPOC blog for future updates.
