Digital technology has enabled an unprecedented growth of knowledge in essentially all areas of scholarly activity. This knowledge, however, is inherently vulnerable, as digital collections typically are not durable and remain susceptible to multiple points of failure. Absent focused and coordinated effort, much of today’s scholarship will be lost to future generations. The Digital Preservation Network (DPN) seeks to rectify this situation by creating a federated preservation network, owned by and for the academy, that will provide secure digital preservation of the scholarly and cultural record.
