Every Not Forgotten legacy product is built with Library 2.0 technology, designed to keep legacies secure, discoverable and accessible for generations. All our products are treated to the same Preservation Protocols. We build archives to Library of Congress standards, which means we keep three copies in three locations on three types of media.
