iPRES 2018 BOSTON—Where Art and Science Meet —The Art In the Science & The Science In the Art of Digital Preservation—will be co-hosted by MIT Libraries and Harvard Library on September 24-27, 2018. Help us celebrate the first 15 Years of iPRES, the premier international conference on the preservation and long-term management of digital materials.
The digital preservation landscape is one of a multitude of choices that vary widely in terms of purpose, scale, cost, and complexity. Over the past year a group of collaborating organizations united in the commitment to digital preservation have come together to explore how we can better communicate with each other and assist members of the wider community as they negotiate this complicated landscape.

From Open Repositories 2018 Program Co-Chairs Claire Knowles and Evviva Weinraub
Open Repositories 2018 is now calling for proposals around the theme of Sustaining Open.
“Hyku” is the result of a thirty-month project to develop a scalable, performant and multi-tenant digital content repository solution within the Samvera (previously known as Hydra) framework. This work was done by Stanford University, DuraSpace, and The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) through a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
