Digital preservation readiness study
“Our archive is not only unique and of great cultural value, but it is also constantly growing and many of these new additions will only ever exist as digital files. If these are lost it will leave an enormous hole in our collective memory so making sure that we not only preserve these, but make them accessible has become increasingly important. We liked the fact that Perpetua gives equal emphasis to both preserving digital assets as it does to making them discoverable and accessible. The fact that Arkivum will be managing the solution for us means that we can use our expertise in the areas where it will have most impact.”Gary Tuson
