Title: To protect and serve: making digital repositories safe and accessible for the long term
Author(s): Ruthven, Tom
Description: 
This paper discusses issues relating to the sustainability of repositories and the material that they hold. The issues are informed by what we consider to be a repository. Two things define a repository. Firstly, a repository is a place, a place where researchers can store objects and data safely, for the long term. Secondly, a repository provides access to the data and objects and as one researcher aptly put it to me: “a repository is not just a warehouse, it is a source of new ways of combining and representing material”.
