“We can now say that we are moving toward digital preservation according to best practices. How many small institutions can say that?”

Joan Curbow, Reference Librarian and Archivist, Buena Vista University

“Our approach in terms of Preservica was to make certain I was not spending my time building a local infrastructure but using one that already existed.”

Gregory S Hunter, Professor of Library and Information Science, Long Island University
