Every year, Duke University Libraries digitizes thousands of items in our collections. These digital assets must be carefully managed to preserve them for generations of students and researchers to come. This work requires storage space, the specialized expertise of our talented staff, and you!

We need your help expanding our capacity to preserve Duke's digital collections! Our Adopt a Digital Collection program allows you to support the long-term preservation of these important cultural and scholarly resources, keeping them safe and accessible indefinitely.

Adoption funds are contributed to the Lowell and Eileen Aptman Digital Preservation Fund.
