4.1.1 - The repository shall identify the Content Information and the Information Properties that the repository will preserve.

Introduction

Scholars Portal is committed to preserving the intellectual content of every object held in the respository. To do this, Scholars Portal captures three essential items from each Submission Information Package:

Scholars Portal maintains the content objects in the publisher provided format until there is a need for transformation of these objects to delay or prevent file obsolescence. In the course of these transformations, priority is given to maintaining the information contained in an individual content object, as opposed to preserving its appearance or a specific presentation.

Responsibility
