The Digital Archives Backup Collaboration Steering Committee will provide project expertise, develop overall project budget needs and governance structure for the digital archives backup collaboration project. The Committee will follow guidelines for steering committees in WPLC bylaws. 

The digital archives backup and storage platform will safely store archival copies of digitized materials and metadata from public libraries from any participating Wisconsin public library system into equipment hosted in two data centers (South Central Library System and LEAN, WI). The purpose is to provide proper storage of digitized materials. This project is in partnership with Recollection Wisconsin.
