The Case for Building a Digital Preservation Network

Currently in its start-up phase, DPN [Digital Preservation Network] is building a digital preservation backbone that connects five existing (or soon to exist, in the case of APTrust) preservation-oriented repositories: the Academic Preservation Trust (APTrust), Chronopolis, HathiTrust, Stanford Digital Repository (SDR), and the University of Texas Digital Repository (UTDR). Collectively, these five are known as the DPN nodes.

Chronicles in preservation: preserving digital news and newspapers

Since the mid-1990s, libraries and archives have been digitizing newspapers for preservation and access. The standards used for this work have evolved significantly during this time. Modern collections employ digitization techniques, metadata extraction and standards, and file formats that are very different compared to early collections. Increasingly, libraries and archives also include born-digital material.

Every Voice Matters: StoryCorps and Digital Preservation at the Library of Congress

from The Signal -
On a crisp, clear January day in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Lucinda Marker and her husband, John Tull, stepped inside an Airstream trailer that StoryCorps converted into a mobile recording studio. Marker and Tull were there to interview each other for an audio memento, to reminisce and talk about significant moments in their shared lives, especially about the time they were gravely ill with the bubonic plague during a vacation in New York City.

Digital Preservation Toolkit | CHIN's Professional Exchange

This Digital Preservation Toolkit provides accessible template, frameworks, decision trees and documents that are designed to help museums assess their digital preservation needs, to produce policy and procedures around digital preservation, and to develop, select and implement an action plan. Resources are presented in chronological order of need for the development of a digital preservation strategy.

Guidelines for legacy repository migration

Universidade do Minho - Several institutions are currently running long-term digital repositories that have been in operation for several years now. Some of these systems are approaching the end of their life spans and will soon be replaced by the next-generation of long-term digital repository systems. This will unavoidably imply the migration of millions of files, metadata records and terabytes of data from the legacy repository to the newly adopted one. Because of the large scale of this operation, this procedure needs careful planning, validation and support.
