The state archives and the official memory of Ohio's government are recorded through public records, documents and images. The mission of the Ohio History Connection is to spark discovery of Ohio's stories by embracing the present, sharing the past, and transforming the future. In addition to operating the State Archives, the organization manages museums and historic sites, along with exhibits, and events.

“We applaud the Ohio History Connection in advancing its mission to safeguard long-term state electronic records, as well as providing citizen access to the rich history of Ohio,” said Mike Quinn, CEO at Preservica. “We are proud to partner with the Ohio History Connection and to see Preservica entrusted with a growing number of state archives across the U.S. We also work closely with the Council of State Archives (CoSA) and are thrilled that Preservica’s platform has the ability to serve the needs of the state archives community.”

In addition, the Council of State Archivists (CoSA) and Preservica share a commitment to digital preservation and broad access to government records. Preservica has been a proud corporate sponsor of CoSA since 2015, providing support for the State Electronic Records Initiative (SERI), CoSA’s flagship education and training program. This year, the Council of State Archivists (CoSA) and Preservica are collaborating to conduct survey research that will examine practices and gaps associated with interagency transfer of permanent electronic state government records.
