CaltechDATA is designed as a long-term data repository and it is expected that data will be available for the foreseeable future. This service is run by TIND and managed by the Caltech Library, which has a decade-plus history of preserving and making digital content available online.  All records are assigned a digital object identifier (DOI), which provides a persistent machine-readable web link to the data set. All data is preserved using the OAIS reference model and multiple copies of all files are stored in different locations using varied storage approaches.
