Excerpt from DPC Annual Report 2008-2009
OA has made progress towards standardising on preservable formats e.g. for documents using ISO 26300 (ODF) and PDF/A and encouraging others, in and out of the heritage sector, to do the same. Work at an international level on the latter has been very successful, particularly in Europe, Brazil and South East Asia. We also continue to be committed to the Open Archaeology concept which, by building and distributing tools and methods for use in the archaeological process hopes to ensure archaeology is not lost to the future.
More information can be found at the newly launched http://openarchaeology.net
Digitising all our legacy holdings has had to be put on hold because of the financial climate as we are our own funders; we hope to resume with digitising our extensive slide collection next financial year. The OA Library is live at http://library. thehumanjourney.net and a portion of past material has been made available. We also hope to start exposing legacy archaeological project archives using the DMS KnowledgeTree further aiding preservation and widening access to the archaeological data we hold.
