Digital Preservation

Georgetown University Library has a strong commitment to the preservation of and long-term access to our collections, and we developed DigitalGeorgetown to manage and preserve our digital content. We also recognize that a collaborative approach is essential to meet the challenges involved in digital preservation, and joined the Academic Preservation Trust as a charter member to preserve our digital collections in perpetuity.

Our digital preservation strategy supports the following objectives:

  • Ensure the continued and persistent access to all digital content within our scope over time
  • Ensure the authenticity of the preserved digital content
  • Observe current standards and best practices related to the creation, maintenance and delivery of digital content and metadata established by the digital preservation community
  • Commit to ongoing training and development of staff in areas related to digital preservation
  • Collaborate with campus, regional, and nationwide partners to make the best use of our resources
  • Adjust preservation strategies to incorporate the capabilities offered by new and emerging technologies and standards in a cost effective way
