MMDP 2021 Annual Meeting Session 2: LOCKSS, CONTENTdm, Digital Preservation, & Collections Access
From Sarah Jean Mainville
First Presentation: Chelsea Denault (Midwest Collaborative for Library Services) - Mitigating Risk: the Michigan Digital Preservation Network & LOCKSS
This presentation will explain how LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe) networks function (i.e., use geographically distributed servers or "nodes," which constantly poll each other and repair damaged or manipulated content) to protect digital content from both natural disasters & human intervention (such as ransomware), share information about the international Private LOCKSS Network (PLN) community, outline our vision for the MDPN LOCKSS network, & share updates re: LOCKSS 2.0 beta1 testing.
Second Presentation: Biz Gallo (Library of Michigan) and Bernadette Bartlett (Library of Michigan) - Non-Library of Michigan Content in LoM’s Expanded CONTENTdm Instance
Starting in 2022, the Library of Michigan will collaborate with Michigan cultural and educational institutions (e.g. libraries, museums, historical societies, archives, schools, etc.) as well as state and local government agencies to build Michigan-themed digital collections through LM’s CONTENTdm instance and LMDigital website. The goal is to remove barriers to creating and sharing digital collections by providing organizations with the necessary resources. We hope that by providing an access platform, training, and infrastructure we can encourage digitization and digital preservation of Michigan's historical record.
