The ASU Digital Repository is committed to providing long-term access to
the digital works it contains, and adheres to digital preservation best
practices to ensure items remain stable, accessible, and usable. ASU
Libraries will take reasonable steps to ensure the usability of the digital
objects placed in the ASU Digital Repository. Digital objects are assigned
a persistent identifier to provide consistent access. Secure storage and
backup services are provided for all digital content.

Contributors should understand that the level of preservation support
provided for items is determined by the file format in which they are
submitted. ASU Libraries will provide greater preservation support to items
submitted in the recommended formats. Recommended file formats are open,
well documented, and widely adopted. ASU Libraries will not guarantee
continued usability of file formats that are proprietary or undocumented,
those that are considered working formats, or not widely adopted.
