Developing and implementing a range of policies is vital for enabling the effective management, discovery, and re-usability of information held within digital repositories. This workshop will provide concrete examples of the range and nature of the policies required and share real-life experiences in implementing these policies through a series of case studies and panel discussions. This workshop will be of benefit to individuals and institutions that are interested in implementing policies to manage, preserve, and reuse digital information held within digital repositories over time.

Recorded: 4 July 2006.
