Preservation

What is it?

Digital materials are currently hosted on a number of different systems across the libraries and managed by different units—Preservation works with all parts of the Libraries in order to better ensure persistent access to this wide range of materials, regardless of the challenges of media failure and technological change.

Please see our current digital preservation policy for ResearchWorks, the Libraries institutional repository, and our list of recommended file formats—because remember: for digital materials, preservation starts at creation!
