Best Practices: Digital Preservation for Independent Schools

The digital age has created new opportunities for academic institutions to interact with their community AND celebrate and preserve their historical legacy.

Launching a digital collections program with digitised or born-digital archival resources such as yearbooks, student newspapers, photos, videos of alumni events, and more – is possible. Preservica’s mission, in partnership with SDS, is to help you protect that legacy and your investment.

Active Digital Preservation should be a foundational element of every organisation’s digital collection program.
