Digital Preservation Network (DPN) How Does it Work?

The Digital Preservation Network (DPN) serves as a preservation backbone for digital information of interest to the academy. DPN Depositors add digital assets to the Network by working with an individual DPN Node to ingest and preserve content. This content is then replicated to other DPN Nodes, which together form a heterogeneous network of secure, trustworthy digital archives, each operated under diverse geographical, organizational, financial, and technical regimes. Robust (bit) auditing and repair functions ensure the fixity of content over time. Intellectual property agreements ensure the succession of rights to use of the content through the Network in the event of dissolution or divestment of content by the original depositor and/or archive.
