The Texas Digital Library invites members to join us this Thursday, March 24, at 2:30 PM for the TDL’s weekly Sprint Review.

Where: TDL Offices and Online
When: Thursday, March 24 at 2:30 PM
Project: Preservation Network (Sprint 16)

This week’s Sprint Review will focus on the TDL Preservation Network (PresNet), an on-going effort to create a robust infrastructure for long-term storage of digital information at geographically distributed storage nodes. Specifically, the team will continue work this week on creating a DSpace plug-in that enables repository managers to select communities and collections to be sent to the Preservation Network and view their status. (Please note that the functionality to be demonstrated on Thursday is in early beta and will not be available for use in “live” production repositories immediately.)
