Webinar: An overview of the APTrust with Program Director Chip German

January 15, 2018

When: Thursday January 25th @ 10 am PST / 11 am MST / 12 noon CST

Join ​Program Director Chip German for an overview and update ​on APTrust, a consortium of higher education institutions in the U.S. committed to providing both a preservation repository for digital content and collaboratively developed services related to that content.

The APTrust repository accepts digital materials in all formats from member institutions, and provides redundant storage in the cloud. It is managed and operated by the University of Virginia and is both a deposit location and a replicating node for the Digital Preservation Network (DPN). The APTrust consortium leverages the expertise of its members to identify and articulate needs for the digital content environment, to prioritize service development, and to collaboratively build solutions. This approach generates economies of scale and increases value for all members. http://aptrust.org/about
