Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

The aim of this paper is to discuss how Cariniana, the Brazilian Network of Digital Preservation, shares technological solutions and the experience of its users. Cariniana arose from the need to create a digital preservation service for Brazilian scientific open access documents in order to ensure the continued long-term access content stored digitally. The network uses distributed computing resources and is supported through its partnership with 9 (nine) research institutions. These partner institutions are responsible for storing and physically integrating data by using LOCKSS (Lots Of Copies Keep Stuff Safe), an open source software developed by Stanford University with the purpose of data preservation in digital format. This is an initiative from the Brazilian Scientific and Technological Information Institute (IBICT) wich promotes the preservation of scientific, technological and cultural heritage.
