4.3.3 - The repository shall have mechanisms to change its preservation plans as a result of its monitoring activities.

As stated in SP's Review Cycle for Documentation Policy, the policies surrounding the operations of SP as a Trusted Digital Repository are subject to review and revision on two schedules: an ongoing basis and a cycle of regular review.


  • As outlined in its mission statement, one of the central responsibilities of SP is the preservation of the content contained therein. To this end, SP staff are continually monitoring relevant communication channels and news sources in order to remain apprised of developments that could affect the long-term viability of the collection.

Regular Review

  • SP's preservation policy and all its related documents will be reviewed every two years in its entirety. This review will be led by the SP staff member responsible for digital preservation, in consultation with a representative sample of staff from OCUL member institutions.
