It is an ecosystem that is designed to evolve to address new forms of scholarship (public sharing of ideas/data/artistic expression), changing formats and the evolution of software and technology platforms. DPN is a federation, not a super organization. It should be loosely coupled with the replicating and contributing nodes. </li> <li> Slide 11 </li> <li> DPN will: create a forum that provides benefit to local preservation efforts; provide a framework for rationalizing investments in preservation efforts; start with books and other formats we understand and evolve to include new forms of scholarship and data as centers of excellence emerge; create a framework against which the academy can retool publication workflows for a digital world; provide a way of planning campus-based cyberinfrastructure (e.g., network, computation, and transient storage needs) so that it efficiently feeds preservation efforts </li> <li> Slide 12 </li> <li> So where is DPN now? </li> </ul>
