A key aspect of the stewardship of digital content is the need to ensure the continuity of the broad cultural and intellectual record in the digital age and the continued availability of evidence to support future scholarly inquiry. Our program highlights technical and fundamental social and public policy challenges related to the stewardship of all types of digital content.
