NDIIPP Partners

On Sept. 30, 2004, the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program announced its first formal partners by making cooperative agreements with eight institutions to begin building a digital preservation network.

These eight lead institutions, which have joined with other institutions and organizations in their efforts, have agreed to identify, collect and preserve digital materials within a nationwide digital preservation infrastructure. These awards from the Library are being matched dollar-for-dollar by the winning institutions in the form of cash, in-kind or other resources. The institutions will share responsibilities for preserving at-risk digital materials of significant cultural and historical value to the nation:

These institutions, as well as others, are engaged in variety of other preservation projects. Among them:
