The Library of Congress > Digital Preservation > Partners > Digital Preservation Research

The network of collecting and preserving partners has identified tools and services that are needed to preserve digital content. One of the most important services is storage for large volumes of files. Others include tools to work with metadata, tools to examine and verify file formats. Several partners within the network are testing and demonstrating these tools and services.

Library of Congress-NSF Research Awards
