Beginner’s Guide to Digital Preservation

JISC has created a site titled a Beginner’s Guide to Digital Preservation. While the site was made for JISC projects, it provides helpful information about digital preservation, starting with defining the problem, and discussing the types of digital media that need to be preserved, the importance of metadata, and helpful tools.

Digital Preservation Benefit Analysis

The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) has created a website for their Digital Preservation Benefit Analysis Tools Project. The toolkit consists of two tools: the KRDS Benefits Framework (Tool 1); and the Value-chain and Benefits Impact tool (Tool 2). The Keeping Research Data Safe (KRDS) Benefits Framework is a tool for identifying, assessing, and communicating the benefits from investing resources in the curation/long-term preservation of research data.
