Abstract
International audience; Nowadays, as the use of digital data for research in Humanities has become the norm, researchers are dealing with a huge amount of data. As a consequence, the risk of data loss is increasing. Another difficulty is to provide full access to this flood of data to users often located in distant areas. These problems can no longer be addressed individually by researchers or even at a laboratory level: it is therefore necessary to use a technical infrastructure with specific skills to provide stable preservation services.This paper will present the implementation of a preservation system in France, branded “Huma-Num-Box”, which aims to address these challenges. This solution is proposed by Huma-Num, the French national infrastructure dedicated to Digital Humanities.
