In this paper a comparison is made between two private Dutch archives (Het Nieuwe Instituut and International Institute of Social History) and how they collect and preserve born digital collections. In dealing with archival donors, preservation policies and IT implementations they have as much in common as they differ from each other. For instance, gaining the trust of the archival donors in the archival policies of the institute is a top priority for both organizations. Nonetheless, how precisely that trust is shaped is entirely dependent on the type of archives being collected, the context in which the institutes have to operate and the collection and preservation policies of either institute. This paper gives insight in these differences and similarities with the aim to find the areas where the organizations might truly support each other.
