The collections we ingest into MetaArchive largely include born-digital objects and digitized copies of audio/visual recordings, and these kinds of collections are at risk for all sorts of loss and damage. MetaArchive provides a trusted way to preserve these at-risk digital collections in a long-term fashion. The trust stems from the fact that MetaArchive is composed of peer, cultural heritage institutions that are on the same wavelength, and that we have a voice on the way the organization is run. This all gives us peace of mind.
