Given growing attention to issues in digital preservation, including that from institutions, funding agencies, and other stakeholders, new technologies to help mitigate risks to digital content are finding themselves at the forefront of librarians’ and archivists’ minds.

Here at the Odum Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, along with Data-PASS partners at Harvard University, the Inter-university Consortium of Political and Social Research at the University of Michigan, the Roper Center at the University of Connecticut, and the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, we have been working hard to develop the IMLS-funded SafeArchive system to ensure that digital collections are preserved for long-term access and use.
