Digital Preservation in Progress
For the past ten years, the Archives and Preservation Unit at Minnesota State University, Mankato has been working with digital collections, but we lacked a formal digital preservation plan until the Digi-Vengers came to save the day. A small but mighty group, the Digi-Vengers used their super powers to draft a digital preservation plan using various magical gizmos, thing-ma-bobs, doohickeys, and extra-sensory perception gleaned from trial and error. The Digi-Vengers utilized lessons from conferences and training to harness the power of preservation. We don’t know our final destination yet, but join us as we share our journey with you. You too, can be a Digital Preservation superhero!
