NIU to help libraries avoid ‘bit rot’
DeKALB – With the help of a $575,000 grant, a group of university librarians and curators hope to have an answer to a growing problem.
Lynne Thomas, curator of rare books and special collections at Northern Illinois University’s Founders Memorial Library, learned in October that NIU, along with four other universities, secured a grant to study the best practices for storing digital data.
The federal National Leadership Grant came from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
