Working across institutional lines provides a possible solution to overcoming resource limitations and general challenges for pursuing robust digital preservation programs.Research limitations/implicationsFindings reported in this work are based on a limited-scope pilot project. Several questions laid out during the pilot remain unanswered at its close.Originality/valueThis paper provides insight into an experimental process rarely reported in library and information science literature. The goal of the paper is to provide a reference point for institutions pursuing a consortial approach to the challenges of applied digital preservation practice.
