“We are delighted to work with Arkivum and use the Perpetua service as part of our overall solution, in particular in the context of working with a collection, likely to exceed 250,000 digital files, capturing a transformational period in the city’s history. This will form a vital part of the University’s strategic review of the most effective approach to digital preservation of archival collections and research data over the long term.”
