The authors outline a model for digital preservation federation based upon several existing models including the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank regional governance model and its similarities to successful large-scale redundant internet networks. In addition other trust models will be examined including Maister, Green, and Galford (2000), Holland and Lockett (1998), and Ring and Van de Ven (1994). These models provide key frameworks for understanding how trust can be enabled among federated but independent institutions.
