A Distributed Digital Preservation Network

MetaArchive is an extensive distributed digital preservation network that currently includes 15 secure, closed-access preservation nodes and more than 200TB of content. These preservation nodes are hosted by libraries in different geographical regions across three continents. The MetaArchive network actively preserves content for more than 60 member libraries, archives, and museums. This content is maintained for preservation only, not for access by members of the network.

Collectively, the Cooperative’s members have developed a stable, affordable, and geographically dispersed digital archive that has safely and securely preserved content since 2004 without the loss of a single “bit”.
