The Digital Preservation Office, headed by Lance Stuchell, strives to ensure the near- and long-term use and viability of the University Library's digital collections by staying abreast of the latest standards, developments, trends, and technologies in the digital preservation community. The Office consults with digital content and collections managers to keep the Library's digital assets useful, contemporary, and secure for patrons now and in the future.
We are also available for consultations to the University of Michigan campus community. Contact us at email@example.com for an appointment to discuss your needs.
The Digital Preservation Office has compiled general resources relating to the preservation of digital collections in both professional and home contexts. Please see:
- What is Digital Preservation for some answers about the preservation of digital objects.
- Digital Preservation Glossary for an overview of terminology.
- External Resources for a list of helpful digital preservation resources from around the Internet.
- Internal Resources for a list of documents and examples of projects at MLibrary.
