Paper and slides presented at the 7th International Conference on Open Repositories on July 12, 2012, in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK,


Three perspectives are presented from the United States on the new ISO 16363 certification process from a repository that is currently preparing to undergo an audit (Purdue University), a repository that has recently been certified as a trustworthy digital repository (Chronopolis Digital Preservation Network, University of California, San Diego), and an auditor (Center for Research Libraries). After a concise overview of the certification process, each panelist will offer insights and practical tips based on their experience and participate in a moderated discussion that includes questions and comments from the audience.
