[42 min.]

June 6, 2012

CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch speaks with James Hilton, Chief Information Officer, University of Virginia about the Digital Preservation Network (DPN), an initiative which aims to create a federated approach to preservation of academic content:

“To avoid the catastrophic loss of scholarship, we must build and sustain a diverse ecosystem that can ensure the survival of scholarship in digital form for future generations.  We envision a system that is scalable, sustainable, and complementary to existing collection and preservation efforts—the Digital Preservation Network (DPN or Deepen).”
