MetaArchive Cooperative

Fostering better understanding of distributed digital preservation methods and to create enduring and stable, geographically dispersed "dark archives” of digital materials that can be drawn upon to restore collections at Member organizations.

The MetaArchive Cooperative is a distributed digital preservation network that ensures that today’s digital collections will be available to tomorrow’s scholars, researchers, and citizens. MetaArchive is governed and run by its membership, which comprises an international array of more than 50 libraries and archives. Founded more than a decade ago, MetaArchive encourages and enables memory organizations to build their own preservation infrastructures and expertise. The collaborative community wrestles with today’s most challenging digital preservation issues—both experientially through its network and theoretically through the conversations, research projects, and working groups it hosts.
