The study, documentation, and modeling of distributed digital preservation frameworks to preserve digitized and born-digital newspaper collections.

The Educopia Institute, with the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the libraries of University of North Texas, Penn State, Virginia Tech, University of Utah, Georgia Tech, Boston College, and Clemson University, proposes to study, document, and model the use of data preparation and distributed digital preservation frameworks to collaboratively preserve digitized and born-digital newspaper collections. We propose to investigate three issues through the following series of research questions: 1. How can curators effectively and efficiently prepare their existing digitized and born-digital newspaper collections for preservation?] 2. How can curators ingest preservation-ready newspaper content into existing DDP solutions? 3. What are the strengths and challenges presented by using three leading DDP solutions for preserving digital newspaper content?
