About CPS


Conservation and Preservation Services (CPS) is dedicated to ensuring that both current and future scholars can access materials held in MIT Libraries’ extensive collections. This includes content in any form – digital, print, or media-based – that is created by MIT or acquired for the library, archives, or special collections and that is relied upon for ongoing research and instruction. See our department milestones page for a brief history of preservation in the MIT Libraries.
