The goal of this project was to consider the relationships between potential stakeholders and participants in the DPLA and to explore ways they might work together to build a sustainable model that facilitates long-term preservation of materials in addition to access. The backbone of the proposal is a model of federated repositories that would operate at different levels of preservation and access, but which would coordinate with one another and with the DPLA to provide an integrated environment of access for users and long-term curation and preservation of materials. The end product was intended to provide input on possibilities and issues to consider in the organizational, business, and technological structures of the DPLA.
