The Indiana University Libraries-Bloomington Born Digital Preservation Lab is part of the Digital Preservation Unit, which resides in Library Technologies. Began in January 2016, the lab aims to develop workflows and procedures to effectively preserve and manage all born-digital content owned by the Libraries, as well as to assist other IU departments and colleges. Please see our documentation below for further information. Feel free to contact us at any time with questions or for advice on projects.
