The SDR ensures that digital collections of images, maps, manuscripts, books, media, data, websites, and more are available to researchers.
Stanford Digital Repository
The Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) is Stanford University Libraries' digital preservation system. The core repository provides "back-office" preservation services--data replication, auditing, media migration, and retrieval--in a secure, sustainable, scalable stewardship environment.
The SDR team consults with librarians, archivists, and others across the Stanford campus, providing technical guidance in creating, building, and acquiring digital collections that will remain usable even as technology changes. Through this combination of technical strategies and programmatic activities, the SDR ensures ongoing access to digital information resources of enduring value to the Stanford community.
