Digital Preservation

FLVC provides services for the long-term preservation of digital content. The Florida Digital Archive (FDA) provides a cost-effective, long-term preservation repository for digital materials in support of teaching and learning, scholarship, and research in the state of Florida. All materials stored on the Islandora digital platform are automatically preserved in the FDA; other materials may also be submitted by FLVC institutions.

The FDA relies on the DAITSS (Dark Archives In The Sunshine State) open source digital preservation software application. DAITSS provides automated support for the functions of submission, ingest, archival storage, access, withdrawal, and repository management, and is particularly well suited for materials in text, document, image, audio, and video formats.
