The Digital Preservation Network (DPN) to Cease Operations

The Digital Preservation Network (DPN) has announced plans to cease operations. The individual nodes that collectively provided preservation services to DPN seek to reassure the DPN membership as well as the larger academic and digital preservation communities that we remain confident about the future of digital preservation. Read the announcement on the DuraSpace blog.

Texas Digital Library Joins Chronopolis

The Texas Digital Library (TDL), along with the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin, has joined the Chronopolis digital preservation network, becoming the first new node since the network’s inception in 2008. Read more.

Chronopolis Teams up with DuraSpace
