Description: ​This panel will discuss the challenges and advantages of establishing centralized digital preservation intake services at large and distributed institutions. Each panelist will present from a different stage of implementation, offering distinct perspectives on the process, followed by a moderated discussion and welcomed questions from the audience. Jess Whyte, from University of Toronto, will discuss the process of conducting a needs assessment and planning for a pilot project. Alice Prael will present the findings from a pilot centralized service for special collections at Yale University and explore the shift from a pilot project to a sustainable program. Dinah Handel will discuss the service management approach as it relates to digitization and digital preservation, as well has how Stanford has centralized their Digitization Services within the Digital Library Systems and Services department to meet stakeholder and inter-department needs. The goal of the session is to develop the discourse around infrastructure, the realities of implementation, and how the paths to maturity are not always linear or singular. The infrastructures modeled in this session can facilitate sustainable digital preservation by centralizing technical services while maintaining distributed stewardship, but are not without their challenges. ​This panel will discuss the challenges and advantages of establishing centralized digital preservation intake services at large and distributed institutions.
