3 33 What I planned to accomplish Gap analysis of policies Submission agreements Ingest workflows for donors + vendors submitting digitized materials How I saw myself carrying out your plan Researching policy examples, coming up with templates Working with donors regarding ingest What resources I neededTime – Digital preservation is only one of four services my dept. seeks to provide. Plus many on the team, especially me have been tied up working on a Rockefeller Foundation Centennial website. My expected challengesDistractions with other projects Technical support for Linux systems (or lack therof) My six-month plan DigCCurr Professional Institute

4 44 How I carried out the plan (or components of the plan) Worked with a donor to establish transfer mechanics Established draft ingest workflow What changed about my plan Became evident a collection policy was needed first and foremost. Decided to hold off developing additional policies until that was in place. Also, my work is not just digital preservation – it’s systematizing the management of digital materials w/in my organization. A more holistic view is needed. My biggest successesWe have a program with Archive-it in place and are ready to offer managed services to our donors. I started a D- Recs committee with point people from throughout the archives. Archivematica now in-production for digitized materials received from vendor. My biggest challenges Working with the IT group - backups. Lack of time. What I accomplished DigCCurr Professional Institute

8 88 Areas of my plan that require collaboration All of it. Possibilities for collaborating within my institution The D-Recs committee will be undertaking pilot projects that require collaborations across most of the departments in the RAC. These pilot projects will serve as the foundation for systematizing institutional practice. Possibilities for collaborating with other Institute members We’re doing integration work with the Archivists’ Toolkit and Archivematica – other institutions have expressed an interest in this work as well. Also really interested in working with others who preserve and provide access to databases. Opportunities for collaboration DigCCurr Professional Institute
