  • Slide 3
  • The scholarship that is being produced today, both print and digital, is at serious risk of being lost forever to future generations.
  • Slide 4
  • The good news is the academy can fix it.
  • Slide 5
  • Lessons learned from the Space Shuttle
  • Slide 6
  • Create a federated Digital Preservation Network (DPN) to ensure that the objects and meta-data of research and scholarship are replicated and preserved across diverse: - software architectures - organizations - geographic regions - political environments (after first launching within U.S.) Ensure longevity by building a framework that can scale and evolve over time, formats, and organizations.

  • DPN is not a software project. It is an ecosystem that is designed to evolve to address new forms of scholarship (public sharing of ideas/data/artistic expression), changing formats and the evolution of software and technology platforms. DPN is a federation, not a super organization. It should be loosely coupled with the replicating and contributing nodes.
  • Slide 11
  • DPN will: create a forum that provides benefit to local preservation efforts; provide a framework for rationalizing investments in preservation efforts; start with books and other formats we understand and evolve to include new forms of scholarship and data as centers of excellence emerge; create a framework against which the academy can retool publication workflows for a digital world; provide a way of planning campus-based cyberinfrastructure (e.g., network, computation, and transient storage needs) so that it efficiently feeds preservation efforts

  • So where is DPN now?
