COPPUL news release: Emily Carr University of Art+Design joins WestVault

December 19, 2019

BC ELN and COPPUL are pleased to welcome Emily Carr University of Art + Design into COPPUL's WestVault preservation network. Thanks to the work of Brandon Weigel, Manager of BCELN's Arca digital repository program, and COPPUL's former CDSN coordinator, Corey Davis, COPPUL and BC ELN have entered into an informal agreement with BCELN to allow members of Arca  to use the COPPUL WestVault services, and vice versa.  The Arca platform fully automates the deposit of repository content into COPPUL's WestVault LOCKSS-based preservation network. This is the first successful automated integration of a standard repository platform and a distributed preservation storage service in the library sector.  

For more information, please contact Vivian Stieda at COPPUL or Brandon Weigel at BCELN.
