In 2016, the APTrust Communication and Policies Group began working on a policy template, workflow, and list of unwritten policies. This space documents our progress in getting policies established.

The draft Policy on Policies states that the principles behind our policy-making program include:

  • The APTrust will develop the policies they need to systematically, reliably and strategically administer digital preservation services to its members.
  • The APTrust is committed to a transparent policy-making process.
  • While policy development will be responsive to the evolving needs and interests of the APTrust membership, it will also be thoughtful and deliberate.
  • The APTrust is committed to timely enactment and enforcement of policies after they have been approved
