Project dates: September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2020
Texas Digital Library, in collaboration with the University of California, San Diego Library, has been awarded a one year planning grant to gather requirements and create supporting documents for a service model for the first nationally distributed digital preservation (DDP) service for sensitive data. This planning grant will support the research and data gathering needed to model a nationwide distributed digital preservation service for private and sensitive content.
The Texas Digital Library (TDL) and the UC San Diego (UCSD) Library initiated a project in 2019, funded by an IMLS grant, to explore the feasibility of a nationwide model for the first Distributed Digital Preservation (DDP) solution for sensitive and protected data. What the project team has learned will inform any service providers wishing to move ahead with developing DDP services for private and sensitive data.
