Content Stewardship

What We Do: We oversee the preservation of physical and digital collections using sustainable practices with the goal of making them permanently accessible. Our work includes:

  • Preservation and conservation of University Library-held materials in all formats
  • Consulting on preservation of scholarly and cultural materials and on incident response when they are threatened or damaged
  • Providing scholarly repository services, including managing our institutional repository, Libra, which contains digital scholarly products of the University
  • Leading the Academic Preservation Trust, a consortium of institutions developing solutions for large-scale preservation of digital academic content
  • Coordinating a program of guidance related to intellectual property, copyright, and rights management for scholarly materials
