The University of Adelaide Library has developed a Digital Preservation Strategy and Roadmap as part of its commitment to expert information management, collection management and preservation, and support for information resource discovery. This paper describes the collaborative development of the Strategy and Roadmap, which drew on the resources and peer network of the Digital Preservation Coalition. Successful delivery of the Digital Preservation Strategy and Roadmap will involve cultivation of a skilled, aware and collaborative workforce. It will depend initially upon the development, adoption and refinement of improved and new processes, but should, in time, become part of business as usual.


Alexis Tindall joined the University of Adelaide Library as Manager, Digital Innovation in April 2020. Prior to that she worked with the Australian Research Data Commons, and related projects, to support data-enabled humanities, arts and social sciences research, delivering strategic projects and training around data and research infrastructure.
