London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) – ranked the fifth best university in the UK and 25th in the world – has chosen Arkivum PERPETUA to manage and preserve its digital assets. PERPETUA will be used by LSE Library to store and preserve its wide range of digitised and born digital collections.
Arkivum PERPETUA is a digital preservation and archival safeguarding solution designed specifically for the heritage, library and higher education markets. “By providing both research data management and digital preservation capabilities, Arkivum PERPETUA will help LSE Library get a great return on its investment in digitisation” says Paula Keogh, Arkivum Sector Manager.
“Many universities find our efficient resource management workflows particularly attractive” says Paula. “They’ve been over-reliant on spreadsheets and cumbersome processes for so long, and they’re finally able to make even their largest collections of digital assets secure and accessible to a global audience within a short time period.”
Paula concludes: “Arkivum PERPETUA keeps digital assets safe, secure and future-proofed. That’s how they will make the best possible impact on the outside world in the decades ahead – by being as accessible as possible to researchers, teachers, students and enthusiasts everywhere.”
