Subject: [NDSA-STANDARDS] Requirements for a digital preservation service


I am participating in a group (non-NDSA) that is creating a list of requirements or features that archivists would like to see in a digital preservation service. We are in the early stages and thought there has likely been work done in this area, and it would help us to have ideas as a jumping-off point.

Has the Standards group done any work in this area, or does anyone know of another resource?

Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
