Grand Valley State University Libraries will lay the foundation for a collaborative network to provide statewide digital preservation services for libraries, archives, and museums in Michigan, and share their findings for use in other regions. Through facilitated knowledge exchanges, field research, and expert consultations, this project will study the best practices as well as the barriers to inter-organizational collaboration. It will result in the development of practical resources to help institutions sustainably collaborate on digital preservation activities. The project will replicate, test, and update advancements that have been achieved in successful regional networks, and share lessons learned and new resources with other states and regions.
