(Storage for digital materials)

Library and Archives Canada's growing collection of digital documentary heritage, which includes online and Internet publications, websites, textual documents, images and audiovisual recordings, must be preserved for use by future generations. To meet the challenge of preserving digital collections in a rapidly changing social and technological environment LAC is developing a suite of Trusted Digital Repository services for ingest, storage, management of, and access to, the digital collection.
