Depository System (CDS)
CDS is a joint project between the DPO and D-LIT for centralized control
of potentially distributed collections. The DPO is developing the policy
framework, defining the organizational context, and establishing the preservation
requirements for the CDS. D-LIT will develop and operate the CDS.
Library and Information Technologies (D-LIT)
The D-LIT Division is responsible for the digital library and common depository
Preservation Management Workshop
The development of this new NEH funded digital preservation workshop based
upon the digital imaging tutorial/workshop model is one of the first projects
that the Research Department will undertake.
Preservation Officer (DPO)
The DPO is a new position that coordinates the development and implementation
of preservation policy.
Preservation Publications and Presentations
This new unit in Instruction, Research, and Information Services (IRIS) was established in July 2002 as a focal point for Library research that builds upon the well-established digital imaging and preservation research program of DIPPR and extends the scope of library research topics.
Project Harvest was one of seven planning projects funded by the Andrew
W. Mellon Foundation to explore e-journal archiving issues. The Subject-Based
Digital Archive (SBDA) Model resulted from an exploration of the subject-based
versus publisher-based archival approach. The digital preservation research
unit is exploring the broader implications and potential of the SBDA model.
