Declaration of Interdependence

by cultural memory organizations, for digital preservation

In the belief that it is our own responsibility to preserve digital files, the member organizations have agreed to band together for the common good of the institutions we serve and scholars around the world.To that end, we have joined MetaArchive, a digital preservation network that empowers organizations to preserve content safely and cost-efficiently, while retaining complete ownership and control of all digital files.May our cooperative approach become a powerful force for the free exchange of ideas and knowledge everywhere.
