The Preservation Services Division is busy with projects that enable digital research. We'll show you how specialized hardware and software is used to save collections that live on external media like floppy disks, CDs and hard drives. We'll also highlight how the Library digitizes millions of pages of books, newspapers, and legal gazettes and makes them available for researchers online.
