The Datamirror.org Experiment: Preservation Assurance for Federal Research Data – UC3 :: California Digital Library
"In early 2017, UC3 created Datamirror.org as an independent, dynamic, online mirror of Data.gov, the US federal government’s primary research data portal. Developed in collaboration with Code for Science & Society (CSS), a non-profit organization supporting innovative uses of technology for public good, Datamirror was intended to provide additional levels of assurance that the significant research data found at Data.gov remains freely accessible to the scholarly community and the public for open retrieval and reuse. As noted by the government’s Project Open Data initiative, “Data is a valuable national resource and a strategic asset to the U.S. Government, its partners, and the Public.” Thus, Datamirror.org plays a critical role in protecting this valuable resource from risks of data loss or loss of availability due to technological obsolescence, funding constraints, shifting organizational priorities, malicious attack, or inadvertent error.

Digitally Endangered Species - Digital Preservation Coalition
"The DPC's 'Bit List' of Digitally Endangered Species is a crowd-sourcing exercise to discover which digital materials our community thinks are most at risk, as well as those which are relatively safe thanks to digital preservation. By compiling and maintaining this list over the coming years, the DPC aims to celebrate great digital preservation endeavors as entries become less of a ‘concern,’ whilst still highlighting the need for efforts to safeguard those still considered ‘critically endangered.’ "

Documenting the Now
"DocNow responds to the public's use of social media for chronicling historically significant events as well as demand from scholars, students, and archivists, among others, seeking a user-friendly means of collecting and preserving this type of digital content. DocNow has a strong commitment to prioritizing ethical practices when working with social media content, especially in terms of collection and long-term preservation. This commitment extends to Twitter's notion of honoring user intent and the rights of content creators. The project is a collaborative effort among the University of Maryland, University of California at Riverside, and Washington University in St. Louis. We are extremely grateful for funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation."

Water Data Portal
"The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) has been doing research on water for the last 30 years. Being a non-profit research organization all the research outputs and data used for the research are shared with researchers across the globe as a global public goods (GPGs). The Water Data Portal (WDP), following "one-stop shop" approach, provides access to a large amount of data related to water and agriculture. WDP contains meteorological, hydrological, socio-economic, spatial data layer, satellite images as well as hydrological model setups. The data in the WDP, both spatial & non-spatial, are supported by the standardized metadata and are available for download by user including academia, scientists, researchers and decision makers. However, access is provided in compliance with copyrights, intellectual property rights and data agreements with our partners."

"Digital information is increasingly important to our culture, knowledge base and economy. The Handbook, first compiled by Neil Beagrie and Maggie Jones in 2001, is maintained and updated by the DPC. This full revision (the 2nd Edition) has expanded and updated content to cover over 30 major sections (see Contents). The 2nd edition was compiled with input from 45 practitioners and experts in digital preservation under the direction of Neil Beagrie as managing editor and William Kilbride as chair of the Management and Advisory Boards. The Handbook provides an internationally authoritative and practical guide to the subject of managing digital resources over time and the issues in sustaining access to them. It will be of interest to all those involved in the creation and management of digital materials."

Home | Academic Preservation Trust
"The Academic Preservation Trust (APTrust) is committed to the creation and management of a sustainable environment for digital preservation. APTrust’s aggregated repository will help solve one of the greatest challenges facing research libraries and their parent institutions – preventing the permanent loss of scholarship and cultural records being produced today. APTrust offers new levels of confidence in the preservation of digital content, up to and including permanent deposit in the Digital Preservation Network (DPN) through our systems.  From the start, an institution that places digital content in APTrust will be able to use our capabilities to recover that content in the event it is lost from the local institutional environment. Disaster recovery is only the first in a list of services APTrust is already developing or considering, all in collaboration with our member community.  Such future services may include format migration, alert systems, access to APTrust-stored content (when that is the desire of the owning institution), and aggregated discovery. As our member institutions combine their expertise and resources to accomplish a common mission, together they will develop scalable solutions, new functionalities, and enriched services that will be offered broadly through APTrust."
