Digital Stewardship Network Standing Committee

The CDSN Standing Committee guides COPPUL's overall efforts to build capacity for digital preservation. It provides expert advice and strategic insight to the CDSN Coordinator, Executive Director, and the Board. Membership consists of a balance of experts and those seeking to expand their knowledge of the preservation landscape.

  • Offering a world-class suite of technology, infrastructure, and services
  • Creating a vibrant community of practice
