The need for libraries to confront digital preservation has never been more apparent. The Merrill-Cazier Library at Utah State University recently conducted a digital preservation audit based on the guidelines in the Trustworthy Repositories Audit & Certification: Criteria and Checklist. This audit delved into policies, and procedures related to all aspects of the library’s digitally formatted and born digital objects. This session will discuss the full audit process, preliminary findings.
