Description: Developing and implementing a digital preservation strategy requires making decisions that have long-term implications. What is not always visible is that when decisions are made for one attribute – such as file formats – those decisions affect other knowledge management objectives. For instance, “More Product, Less Process” is a method that promotes making collections available more quickly with less focus on granular organization and description to reduce backlogs and improve access. While this approach is more scalable and sustainable, it tends to make items less discoverable, which may create hidden collections. Practitioners regularly encounter similar dilemmas when implementing digital preservation, and the optimum balance between conflicting objectives is not always clear. The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is developing a digital preservation strategy for its Research Division and working from an internally produced framework (Gold (AU)DRIPSS) to guide decision-making. This framework comprises the principles of accessibility, usability, discoverability, reproducibility, interoperability, preservability, scalability, and sustainability. It differs from existing frameworks by taking a more holistic approach, including incorporating more institutional and project management considerations as well as recognizing that an optimal preservation strategy may require subjective assessment and trade-offs. This presentation will briefly review the development of the Gold (AU)DRIPSS Framework and discuss how it has been internally applied to support digital preservation.
