MetaArchive II

The “Cooperative Network and Service Providers” grant enabled the MetaArchive distributed digital preservation network and service framework to formalize and extend its model into an ongoing, sustainable business. The resulting service and community was designed to be the first incubated community of the Educopia Institute, a nonprofit organization founded to cultivate community action between libraries, archives, and museums.

Project Outputs:

  • Formalized preservation business model for cooperative digital preservation
