Toward Distributed Infrastructures for Digital Preservation: The Roles of Collaboration and Trust

  • Michael Day

Abstract

This paper first explores some of the reasons why collaboration is becoming increasingly important in supporting scientific data curation, digital preservation initiatives and institutional repository development. It then investigates the concepts of trust and control used in the organisation science literature and attempts to apply them to the work on trustworthy repositories being carried out by various international initiatives.
