The Sustainable Heritage Network (SHN) is an answer to the pressing need for comprehensive workshops, online tutorials and web resources dedicated to the lifecycle of digital preservation. The SHN is a collaborative space that compliments the work of indigenous communities globally to preserve cultural heritage and knowledge.  


Leveraging existing networks from our partners at the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums (ATALM), the SHN provides a space to communicate and learn about digital stewardship and preservation. The Sustainable Heritage Network is a gathering place that makes information and resources accessible for anyone who wants to preserve their heritage.

Central to the work of the SHN is facilitating the sharing of both knowledge and resources. Within the network, institutions and communities work together to provide each other with digital tools and preservation assistance. We call this: Collaborative Stewardship.
