“Arkivum not only meets MoMA’s high preservations standards, but is also a financially smart move considering the size of our digital collections (big) and the way we access them (infrequently).”

“Guaranteeing the long-term integrity of our digital assets is an absolutely crucial part of the Archives and Access Project – this archival heritage is extremely valuable to Tate’s future, and the future of British and international art history. We cannot afford to have them compromised in any way.”
