CNI Conversatons:

In the latest CNI Conversations podcast (http://www.cni.org/topics/digital-preservation/digital-preservation-network-cliff-lynch-speaks-with-uvas-james-hilton/ CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch speaks with James Hilton, Chief Information Officer at the University of Virginia, about the Digital Preservation Network (DPN), an initiative which aims to create a federated approach to preservation of academic content:

According to Hilton, "To avoid the catastrophic loss of scholarship, we must build and sustain a diverse ecosystem that can ensure the survival of scholarship in digital form for future generations.  We envision a system that is scalable, sustainable, and complementary to existing collection and preservation efforts—the Digital Preservation Network (DPN or Deepen)."

UK Libraries participated in an organizational meeting in Washington this past spring and, with funding support from the Provost’s Office, joined the DPN initiative shortly afterwards.
