Welsh Journals Online: Effective Leadership for a Common Goal

Long-term access often requires co-operation from many staff. There is a risk that responsibilities are unclear.  Consequently it is important that a senior member of staff is charged with delivering an organization’s digital preservation strategy.

This case note examines a complex digitisation project at the National Library of Wales from the perspective of the organisation.  There are many parties with an interest in digital preservation and many different skills are required.  This creates a risk which can be managed where an organisation is clear about where responsibility lies for preservation actions.  The solution in this case was to nominate a single senior member of staff as the lead officer for digital preservation and allowing them to work across different sections of the institution to achieve a shared goal.
