4.3.2 - The repository shall have mechanisms in place for monitoring its preservation environment.


SP monitors the digital curation field for broad trends and emerging standards, carries out extensive usability testing, and solicits feedback from its Designated Community. In addition, SP works closely with OCUL member libraries to identify and manage format-related problems. Changes introduced by Providers will alert SP to new practices. The repository maintains a log of formats archived and monitors the number of files in each format, so the appearance of a new format will show up in the log.
