Planning for the Academic Preservation Trust consortium began five years ago, and APTrust introduced its digital preservation repository as a production service three years ago. With many technical improvements, a solid financial base, and accelerating rates of deposit, APTrust presents a picture of a collaboration in excellent health. But, is it? Why are some members not currently depositing content? How well does it fit the individual digital preservation strategies of all of its members? Those are some of the questions that the governing board and the members of APTrust decided to explore in the fall of 2017. Staff and member representatives will report on the results of that exploration, the emerging patterns of use of APTrust, and its directions for the future.
