Educopia Institute

Log Number: LG-252340-OLS-22

Educopia Institute, partnering with six members of the Digital Preservation Services Collaborative, will study the needs for and feasibility of a collaborative community-supported digital preservation service. The project team will develop a design for a future service model. This work will culminate in a white paper, a virtual forum, a closing webinar, and conference presentations to be shared with a national audience. The white paper will articulate the need for community-supported, values-driven digital preservation services, and the service model will propose a framework for addressing this need and provide a solid foundation for future development and advocacy. Beneficiaries include community-supported digital preservation service providers, collaborative networks of communities and service providers, and ultimately, researchers and the general public who rely on digital cultural heritage to endure into the future.
