CARL and BCI sign agreement advancing research data management and digital preservation in Canada
- 23 Feb 2018

The Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) and the Bureau de coopération interuniversitaire (BCI) have signed an agreement that will see both organisations work together to advance regional and national issues relating to the data management and digital preservation needs of the Canadian research community.

This partnership brings together the collective expertise, resources and influence from BCI member institutions and CARL's Portage Network to focus on building connections between research data management and effective digital preservation.

By partnering with CARL's Portage Network, Quebec universities will contribute to the national initiative to implement infrastructure and the services needed by BCI researchers to meet the requirements of the three federal councils for research data management.

ProQuest launches long-term preservation initiative 'Dark Archive' with book content
- 13 Feb 2018

ProQuest has launched a new initiative for the long-term archival storage of its digital content, creating a 'dark archive' that protects the investments of its library customers. The ProQuest® SAFE (Secure Archives ForEver) service will ensure preservation and access to content purchased by customers.

The SAFE service will launch using Amazon Glacier, the long-term backup and data-archiving resource from Amazon Web Services, chosen for its ability to ingest and protect ProQuest's 600 terabytes of data. ProQuest will complete the first phase of the SAFE implementation by populating the dark archive with ebook content in 2018 and will support ongoing deposits.

The SAFE service is designed to grow to protect ProQuest's six centuries of books, newspapers, magazines, government documents, video and audio content - the world's largest academic archive.

The SAFE service covers all eligible past and future customer content purchases. If back-up access is needed, customers will have the option to retrieve their content from the SAFE service using a unique SAFE identifier. The first comprehensive annual reports on content coverage will be provided in 2018.

SAFE is the latest innovation in ProQuest's history of preserving the world's scholarship. In 1938, founder Eugene Power used a hand-built microfilm camera to preserve the contents of the British Library, ensuring its survival despite the ravages of World War II. Since then, the company has curated content essential to research and learning, simplified the workflows that surround its use, and connected this content with scholarly communities around the world.

Originally created in 1939, PQDT archives and improves the discovery of graduate works from research universities around the world. Many dissertations in PQDT include multimedia components and accompanying datasets so researchers can access valuable content that goes far beyond text.

With 4.5 million dissertations and theses - 2.2 million in full text - PQDT is used by more than 3,000 universities, and now, Philippines Women's University joins that list.
