This policy only addresses the preservation of digital collections and resources for which the Library is the primary custodian. However, the Library has a responsibility to inform, consult, and (as appropriate) coordinate with other units of NIU to ensure adequate ongoing access to NIU created administrative, scholarly, and other digital resources. Furthermore, NIU must work through consortia, licensing agreements, etc. to assure that the NIU community has adequate ongoing access to currently available licensed digital resources. The Library, however, cannot guarantee preservation of materials that we do not directly own and manage.
