The Texas Digital Library is refining our Digital Preservation services and offering them to our members in the context of the greater digital preservation landscape. TDL aims to offer flexible, interoperable, and sustainable digital preservation services for our partners’ diverse holdings that are tethered to good practices. To do this, we want to help our members accomplish their local preservation goals in alignment with existing frameworks like the NDSA Levels of Preservation and the OAIS reference model. TDL continues to offer modular digital preservation services as a result of our new and existing partnerships. We will provide guidance about how such a wide range of technological options allows members to select how they’d like to ensure the longevity of their prized digital collections, acknowledging that not all content requires the same digital preservation treatment.  TDL partners include custodians for a range of heritage content, and we want to help situate their current and aspirational workflows within TDL offerings. To illustrate this goal, we will discuss how some TDL members have applied DuraCloud storage services and how they select content for integration with the Digital Preservation Network.
