The University of Toronto Libraries and Scholars Portal embarked on a joint project two years ago to re-architect the way we think about and do digital preservation. In light of the ever-increasing amount of data our libraries are called to preserve, we realized that the approaches we had used previously were no longer keeping up. As a result, we have moved away from a monolithic repository model and have moved toward a more flexible, microservice-based approach. This approach has now been realized in a new DAMS we call Canopus. This briefing will include information about this new system and where this journey has taken us, as well as some lessons learned in the process, by way of contributing to the ongoing dialog about what it means to collect and preserve digital materials in 2019 (and hopefully beyond).
