The University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS) has initiated steps toward centralizing the digital assets it stewards across its diverse institutional, subject-based, and digital collections repositories and toward adding new access possibilities to assets impacted by copyright licenses by investing in a digital preservation system. Historically, the ULS has acquired, created, and provided access to digital content for 20 years using various platforms and standard business backups. However, in June of 2020, the ULS invested in Preservica to provide full digital preservation for this data. This system allows the use of APIs to transfer data between platforms. It also offers access to content via an authenticated account. This briefing will describe the work underway to build a digital preservation program at our institution. We will not only look at the challenges of technical implementation but also describe the opportunities and tensions surrounding content selection and authenticated access to materials under copyright.
