Mascots for Team Digipres!

The following is a guest post by Tess Webre, intern with NDIIPP at the Library of Congress

Baseball season is upon us! It’s time we root root root for the home teams, eat peanuts and crackerjacks, and yell at the umpires.  It is also time to delight in the zany antics of mascots. However, there is an issue here. Who are the mascots for team digipres? I have decided to put my hat in the ring with a few new ideas. They can be the new mascots of digital preservation, or provide a distraction from the normal humdrum of the work week.  Either way, it’s a win-win. Let us know your favorite in the comments below or if you have any other ideas. Enjoy!

    No hipsters, please.

    The platypus could work, though. (Go, monotremes!)
