Digital preservation is a "must-have" function for every library who purchases digital content. A digital preservation system extends the model of print journals and books on the shelf to digital media. It ensures that a library continues to have access to their digital assets even after a subscription is canceled or the publisher discontinues access. Setting up a digital preservation system is surprisingly easy. The key is ensuring that you buy perpetual access to your content, and that your content providers support the digital preservation system that you choose. This talk introduces you to digital preservation systems, discusses preservation strategies and pitfalls, and shows you how to give library users access to preserved content.
