Distributed digital preservation, or "dark archiving" has been a consistent activity over the last decade, yet it has not received much attention in the archival realm even though its aim of long-term preservation of digital materials is aligned with our archival mandate as custodians of digital materials. The panelists provide an introduction to distributed digital preservation and an overview of how Chronopolis, the Digital Preservation Network, Academic Preservation Trust, and MetaArchive Cooperative systems work. Audience participatory discussion includes long-term digital preservation, including: costs, technology, hurdles and future planning.
