I’m really impressed with what you’ve come up with, especially considering how scattered the content is within the organization. I especially like the diversity of storage systems you’ve included. Amazon Glacier is great for long-term storage while DropBox is a great option for easy member access.
Thanks, since the choir doesn’t access their recordings that often, Amazon
glacier seemed like a great resource to use. For the items they access regularly, I figured that Dropbox would be the best access system, since the documents can be accessed but the managing director can put some restrictions on certain files.
This is great! I really like how you start by laying out how the choir will get “up to speed” – for a small organization that hasn’t considered long-term digital preservation before (I mean who has, really? But they should of course!), this is a necessary step!
I’m envious of how you split up the content – I wish I had thought of that! My organization has a similar split between archival photos, etc. and business records. I made the distinction between “open” and “static” records, where the open records were like your Business Documents that may be updated and therefore need to be more accessible. I think the way you split up these two groups, and the methods you chose for preservation for each, is really great (can I steal it? haha). Rather than try to store all files in the same places (as I did), you store them separately – this helps you avoid the risk of accidentally messing with the archival records while updating the business documents. I may update my policy to use UMD’s Box the same way you use Dropbox for my organization’s “open” records.
Thanks for a great policy!
P.S. When is your next concert? 🙂
Thanks, the getting up to speed section seemed to be a necessary one time section in order to get any sort of preservation plan off the ground. I also like the terminology you used between static and open, but you can of course steel my separate repositories idea. 🙂 Our next concert focuses on beautiful early music and renaissance pieces, and is taking place on both Friday, December 9th and Saturday, December 10th at 7:30pm at the Church of the Ascention and St Agnus, on 1217 Massachusetts ave NW.
