Abstract
  • This study addresses some of the issues surrounding the preservation of digital objects within a digital repository. The issues of how to determine the significant properties of digital objects and how digital repository infrastructures are developed to foster preservation are specifically addressed. Semi-structured interviews with information professionals and researchers working with a university's digital institutional repository were conducted to gather professional opinions on these issues. Results show the need for a clearly defined goal, concrete policies, and a sustainable repository model as some of the most important factors when creating a trustworthy digital repository.
