Five Principles:

  • Agreements with private sector partners to publish or digitize significant collections will be non-exclusive in nature, in both a legal and a de facto sense.
  • The digital images will be prepared to a suitable preservation standard and maintained in the public sector with a commitment to long-term preservation and accessibility.
  • The integrity and authenticity of the original source material will be maintained and cannot be altered in the online environment.
  • Public access online to publicly owned resources will remain free. Information providers may develop and charge for value-added features but the source material should be accessible and free.
  • As far as possible, online access will be multi-lingual and multi-cultural as appropriate for the source material.
