Presidential Libraries and the Digitization of Our Lives – Dan Cohen
Buried in the recent debates (New York Times, Chicago Tribune, The Public Historian) about the nature, objectives, and location of the Obama Presidential Center is the inexorable move toward a world in which virtually all of the documentation about our lives is digital.

Where to Begin? |
An organization's digital preservation program:

>> needs to fit defined needs, requirements, and resources
>> requires ongoing and iterative development
>> should reflect best practices and standards
Core Components

A fully implemented and viable preservation program addresses organizational issues, technological concerns, and funding questions, balancing them like a three-legged stool.

Three-legged Stool - Introduction to Digital Preservation - Oxford LibGuides at Oxford University
Created by Anne Kenney and Nancy McGovern for the Digital Preservation Management Workshops in 2003-2006, this stool represents the three aspects of a successful and sustainable digital preservation programme:

What the model demonstrates, is that without considering and maintaining each of these components (or "legs"), a digital preservation programme will ultimately collapse. These three components need to be considered together in order to sustain digital preservation activity. 

It is important that a programme does not consider technology as the only solution and that a balance is struck between the technology, the people, the funding and the organizational policies.

Digital Preservation Capability Maturity Model (DPCMM) | CoSA
The DPCMM is a framework used to assess an organization's ability to preserve and provide access to electronic records. It assesses electronic programs on 15 components: policy, strategy, governance, collaboration, technical expertise, open source/neutral formats, designated community, electronic records survey, ingest, storage, device/media renewal, integrity, security, metadata, and access. Programs receive scores in each component ranging from Stage 1 (Nominal) to Stage 5 (Optimal). Organizations can use the DPCMM to strengthen their electronic records programs by advancing through the stages of the components. Organizations can choose to focus on whichever components for which they have the resources.

Levels of Preservation Working Group
The NDSA launched its Levels of Preservation (LoP) guidelines in 2013 as a tiered set of recommendations on how organizations should begin to build or enhance their digital preservation activities. They function as the key tool to help practitioners of all levels deploy a sustainable digital preservation strategy. Since that time practitioners across the globe have been working with the guidelines and some have been extending and adapting them.

Digital Preservation at Oxford and Cambridge | A collaborative research project to evaluate and provide sustainable recommendations for our digital preservation programmes
The Polonsky Digital Preservation Project is a collaboration between Bodleian Libraries (Oxford) and Cambridge University Library (Cambridge) with funding from the Polonsky Foundation. The project will enhance our digital preservation programmes by building on existing expertise and research in the field of digital preservation and curation; it will forge closer links with key digital preservation and curation advocates, including the Digital Preservation Coalition to preserve each institution’s digital assets for the researchers of the future.
