Many of Australia’s state and national galleries, libraries, archives and museums - GLAMs - are connected to AARNet. We’re focused on co-developing services that enable the GLAM community to share and preserve their collections.
We're collaborating with the GLAM community, academia, technology companies and our peer research and education networks worldwide to explore new and emerging technologies for digital preservation.
We are a member of the Software Preservation Network, an international community advancing the practice of curating and preserving software. We also participate in the Digital Preservation Coalition, which is helping members deliver resilient long-term access to digital content and services, derive enduring value from digital assets and raise awareness of the cultural benefits.
AARNet is proud to be a partner on the Australian Emulation Network: Accessing Born Digital Cultural Collections LIEF project, led by Swinburne University. ARNet’s infrastructure will underpin a national scale platform for digital preservation to be offered as a shared service for the benefit of academic and GLAM participants in the project.
