Digital Preservation Policy of the MLU


The MLU has recently published its Digital Preservation Policy. The policy was drafted and discussed by the MLU Open Science and Research Commission and passed by the Academic Senate in summer. The policy specifies which data resources should be stored by the MLU’s infrastructure and preserved in perpetuity, and recommends the use of approved and appropriate external repositories for the storage of other data materials. The policy further recognises the need to increase the capacity of our current infrastructure to provide appropriate solutions for the University’s highly heterogeneous research outputs. In this process, national and international standards and recommendations are complied with. The policy complements already existing open access and research data policies.
