Digital Preservation Network (DPN) Sunset

Community Announcement - DPN SunsetDigital Preservation Network. December 4, 2018.
     The Digital Preservation Network’s Board of Trustees of DPN are ending DPN.  The DPN Board "determined that it is not feasible to design and implement changes that would ensure sustainability." 
"The landscape of digital preservation services has changed considerably in the past six years, as have the community’s preservation needs. Our highest priority is to affect an orderly sunset for the organization’s operations and for the disposition of its deposits."

The ending of a community-based organization to provide long-term digital preservation storage  highlights the numerous challenges with maintaining digital resources long-term.
