Formulation

The repository preservation plan (RPP) is usually for the repository director/manager to formulate in collaboration with the institutions IT department.

Considerations

Currently in the academic literature, much is being said about digital curation/preservation, however this distracts from the strategic imperative of preserving the repository itself and the contents of the repository on the internet, in the same way that libraries and the contents of libraries in buildings, are preserved.

There is a very subtle, but very important distinction between digital curation and repository preservation.
