The core research and teaching missions of Harvard University are increasingly dependent upon digital content. Digital materials are inherently fragile and dependent on technologies and contexts that change continuously. One of the key challenges of the twenty-first century is how to preserve the utility of this digital material for future generations of scholars. The Digital Preservation Services team develops, maintains, enhances, and promotes an ever-evolving set of systems, services, and initiatives that ensure the archival integrity, accessibility, authenticity, and usability of the University’s digital collections. These efforts are supported by ongoing consultation and cooperation with Harvard libraries, archives, and museums as well as close collaboration with Library Technology Services.
