DPSC Planning Project: Sustainable Community-Owned Partnerships in Digital Preservation

Educopia Institute is partnering with six members of the Digital Preservation Services Collaborative (APTrust, Chronopolis, CLOCKSS, LYRASIS, MetaArchive, and Texas Digital Library) to articulate the need for values-driven, community-supported distributed digital preservation service options and to propose a service model for collaboration that ensures the authority, sustainability, and viability of these options. This service model will delineate where partners could combine service efforts and/or remain independent for the sake of a variety of organizational and content needs, distributed digital preservation good practice, efficiency, and sustainability at the field level.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services LG-252340-OLS-22.
