Digital Preservation Network
Chief Technology Officer and Associate Dean
University of Southern California
Since 2013 the Digital Preservation Network (DPN) has been working on developing solutions to enable the preservation of digital content for the next generation of scholars and beyond. DPN members are working together to solve the most difficult and persistent problems facing the community. Audio and moving image content present significant challenges when it comes to long-term preservation. These include scale, cost, and file transfer problems to name a few. DPN has partnered with the University of Southern California and LibNova to develop a preservation node for audio and moving image content (and for other very large data collections) that addresses the most significant challenges. This session will demonstrate the features of this new solution and will discuss how this fits into the broader DPN vision for the long-term preservation of digital content.
