Podcast: The Digital Preservation Network

Speaker: James L. Hilton, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, University of Virginia

This session will address the progress occurring in launching the Digital Preservation Network. With more than 50 institutional members, DPN builds on the higher education community's current preservation efforts by creating a federated preservation network, owned by and for the academy, which will provide secure digital archiving of the scholarly and cultural record. At the heart of DPN is a commitment to replicate the data and metadata of research and scholarship across diverse software architectures, organizational structures, geographic regions, and political environments. Replication diversity, combined with succession rights management, will ensure that future generations have access to today's discoveries and insights.
