Grant helps library preserve digital records

The Door County Library is getting help to ensure digitized historical records and documents are preserved for the long term.  The library received a Curating Community Digital Collections grant from Wisconsin Library Services.  Adult Services Librarian Laura Kayacan says that's allowing the Door County Library to bring in outside help from UW-Milwaukee and St. Norbert College to provide guidance on the most effective way to preserve digital records.

Kayacan says Door County Library had three storage systems including master files, back-ups, and access copies online.  What the library didn't have were back-ups on two different formats.  Kayacan says it's preservation systems included DVD's which are not effective over the long term.
