Description

In this paper, the authors describe the work done within the NSLA Digital Preservation Group to create a list and description of the functional components of an ideal digital preservation environment and a matrix of the current stage of development against each component for each NSLA library. After defining underlying assumptions, the functional components were derived from the OAIS standard. A modified Capability Maturity Model was incorporated as a mechanism for determining each organisation’s stage of development against each component. The matrix was then completed by representatives from the Digital Preservation Group in each of the ten NSLA libraries. The respondents were asked to self-rate their organisations for both the current digital preservation situation, and an intended situation in three years’ time. NSLA has identified digital preservation as an area of priority. The results from the Digital Preservation Environment Maturity Matrix reveal that NSLA libraries are on the right path but have some way to go before digital preservation processes are mature, sustainable and fit for purpose. Collaboration on policies, products and infrastructure will continue to address these needs.
