Digital Preservation


This site is hosted by the Library of Congress and presents information about the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) and its initiatives. While NDIIPP is no longer an active program at the Library of Congress, its success is evident in the diverse and mature digital preservation community that is now thriving in the United States. Details about the origin and history of the program are available at Background and Reports. An archived version of the site is available at the Internet Archive (This page best viewed from the Summer of 2018 or earlier).

The Library of Congress is actively committed to developing, following and promoting effective methods for digital content management, organization, preservation, and access; conducting and encouraging research in digital preservation sciences and technologies; and building relationships with stakeholder communities to share digital collections management information, practices, and resources. The Library’s digital collections management activities and available informational resources are distributed among the institutions listed below.
