tDAR digital antiquity

Agreement to Sustain tDAR’s Digital Records

Digital Antiquity was founded with two basic goals in mind: (1) provide broad and easy access to archaeological data and documents and (2) ensure the long-term preservation of digital archaeological information for future use.  In July Arizona State University Libraries and Digital Antiquity signed an agreement to ensure that tDAR’s records would remain accessible and be preserved even in the event that Digital Antiquity is unable to continue to support tDAR’s development and maintenance.  This formal Memorandum of Agreement reinforces our commitment to provide a sustainable digital repository dedicated to serving the information access and preservation needs of the archaeological community.
