Study of preservation plans of digitisation projects

JISC recently commissioned a tender to undertake a study of the preservation plans and processes of the sixteen projects funded under Phase 2 of the JISC Digitisation Programme and identify best practice and issues in terms of medium or long-term access to the digitised content.

The tenders have now been received and the winning proposal came from the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), an international membership body working on various issues related to digital preservation.

The leaders of the study (Frances Boyle and Kevin Ashley) will be commencing work soon, and, as well as studying the plans will be developing some case studies based on work of specific projects.

Outcomes from the study will be available in April 2009.
