NASIGuide: Model Digital Preservation Policy

Draft Policy:

Beginning in 2019, The Digital Preservation Committee has been working with members of the Library Publishing Coalition and the Society for Scholarly Publishing on a Model Preservation Policy for Digital Publishers and Preservers. A draft of the policy is available and the group is seeking feedback.

The draft is available as a google doc.

Please provide feedback in our survey. The deadline for feedback is 30 November 2021.

A webinar about the draft policy was held on 16 September 2021.  The webinar speakers were Jennifer Regala, Jeremy Morse, Grant Hurley, and Corinne Guimont.


To ensure digital scholarly content in all formats remains available to future users, all organizations involved in scholarly production and dissemination have a role to take in digital preservation. The NASIG Digital Preservation Model Policy draft is now moving through the comment and revision stage of development. This evolving policy, designed as a tool to publicize, measure, and grow your organization’s commitment to the preservation of its scholarly assets, includes

  • identifying first step initiatives,
  • activities emerging in the field, and
  • opportunities to share and refine professional experiences

Whether your organization has an active program or hasn’t yet taken measures to identify at-risk resources, this is an opportunity to learn, share, and strengthen future commitment. Please participate in submitting comments and provide valued feedback about how your organization’s unique needs fit with this model policy development.
