The Digital Collections of the Oviatt Library at California State University, Northridge makes almost 64,000 objects available to the public through over 30 collections in OCLC’s ContentDM, with new collections being received, processed and curated each month. Storage overhead for archival files had grown to over 10TB, stored locally, which made backups untenable and local storage failure inevitable. In Fall 2018 we began architecting a solution for inexpensive permanent storage with secure preservation using Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 Glacier. The session will demonstrate how the Oviatt Library integrated Glacier and other AWS services into our networked environment, and implemented an inexpensive archive/restore tool, Cloudberry, so that staff could readily retrieve archived items from deep storage without disturbing their integrity. The project was fully implemented November 2020.
