      Project Title: "Alabama Digital Preservation Network"
      The Network of Alabama Academic Libraries will test the feasibility of
      adopting the LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe) preservation
      approach to locally created digital assets in a state-based, low-cost
      archival preservation network. Currently used for journals, LOCKSS
      creates a network of duplicates that can replace quickly any lost or
      damaged digital object. This project will create the Alabama Digital
      Preservation Network for digital repositories of all types,
      demonstrating a preservation solution for academic institutions, state
      agencies, and community cultural heritage organizations that are
      building digital collections for public access.
