The ECHO DEPository project pulled together several streams of activities aimed at helping to answer the question of how digital resources will be identified, archived, and preserved for the future. ECHO DEPository explored ways for libraries and repositories to share and preserve digital information in a variety of formats, including Web-based government publications, historical documents and photos, sound and video recordings, websites and other digital resources. Partners collaborated to produce tools, practices, evaluations and research that will help in selecting and preserving electronic resources in a variety of digital repositories.
