MetaArchive Cooperative

Since 2007, the MetaArchive Cooperative has preserved the digital collections of more than 60 archives, museums, public libraries, and library consortia in Europe, South America, and across the United States. But MetaArchive is more than just a digital preservation storage service. We are a community of librarians, archivists, and curators, helping each other take on the challenge of preserving digital content. MetaArchive is a place for knowledge exchange and sharing of best practices around digital preservation policies, tools, file formats, and beyond. As a distributed digital preservation network, MetaArchive provides digital content storage utilizing the LOCKSS software. This means that digital content is replicated multiple times across multiple geographic locations, protecting against all kinds of potential risks like natural disasters, hardware crashes, and human error. The hardware infrastructure that keeps the network humming is owned and operated by member institutions, allowing us to both maintain control and also keep costs affordable.
