Setting Institutional Repositories on the Path to Digital Preservation: Final Project Report from the JISC KeepIt ProjectPosted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Digital Repositories, Institutional Repositories, Reports and White Papers on July 6th, 2011
Here's an excerpt:
Digital preservation starts with detailed knowledge and awareness of your own content. The scope for content of institutional repositories has grown from research papers to presenting data supporting the research, also covering teaching materials, and artistic creativity. Four repositories representing each content type—the exemplars—joined the KeepIt project to investigate how effectively each could support the goals of a general repository: trustworthy storage, and preservation. This final report from the project reveals the results, outcomes and implications of the work.
