LG-Nat Digital Infrastructures - Planning

The Texas Digital Library, collaborating with multiple partner institutions, will plan a service model for the first nationally-distributed digital preservation service for private and sensitive data. While distributed digital preservation services have been offered in the United States for over a decade, there is no distributed service offering for sensitive data. Personally Identifiable Information or Personal Health Information, as well as other sensitive data in the custody of libraries, health science centers, and archives is at an escalated risk of loss. The project partners and consultants will support the research and data gathering needed to model a nationwide distributed digital preservation service for private and sensitive content. The final grant deliverables are a report modeling the establishment of a service in the United States for sensitive data, as well as templates for legal agreements, technical requirements for data transfer, and sustainable service cost modeling.
