FRASER & FedPreserve Program Manager
Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis
In 2018, the Conference of First Vice Presidents of the Federal Reserve System approved FedPreserve, a commercial off-the-shelf on-premises digital preservation platform and awarded the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis the national digital preservation support office. FedPreserve’s mission is to offer a centralized digital preservation program to all 12 Banks in the Federal Reserve System. Unlike many pilot projects, the FedPreserve mission and business case was extensively validated over the course of a three-year, two-phase, multiple work-stream project and culminated in a year-long full-scale proof-of-concept. This proposal will extract key success factors from a formally managed national digital preservation program that can be put to use in large or small digital preservation projects.
