Appropriate and timely examination of the digital preservation plans of digitization projects can have a lasting impact. Projects may not know or understand the risks they run. Simple assessment can help them identify and address these risks sooner rather than later.
The DPC and ULCC with the assistance of Portico and funding from JISC are pleased to announce the release of a new Case Note in digital preservation: Assessing Long-term Access from Short-term Digitization Projects. This new case note, written by Patricia Sleeman of University of London Computer Centre provides a simple set of questions to which they used to evaluate the long term prospects of 16 digitization projects funded by JISC, The survey questions will be useful to any funder wanting to test the durability of digital content that they are creating, and any digitization project manager keen to ensure that their work is robust.
