4.1.6 - The repository shall obtain sufficient control over the Digital Objects to preserve them.
SP obtains rights from individual Providers that give the repository control over some or all of the information deposited by the Provider. The nature and scope of these rights varies by Provider. In cases where the repository takes responsibility for the preservation of information, the rights include provisions for SP to receive a local copy of the information and host it in perpetuity. This local loading allows SP to completely own and control the digital copy of the content given to them by the Provider regardless of changes in the publishing world or changes in the library’s subscription policies. In some cases, the repository obtains the right to modify information in order to ensure long-term preservation and accessibility.
SP creates preservation metadata for each object in the repository and records any event that happens to the object along with the date and time of occurrence. The records use PREMIS markup conventions.
Documents explaining this in greater detail are available below.
