New preservation guide
December 15, 2010 Leave a comment
A new preservation guide has been released from the KRDS projects.
From the release: ” KRDS is a cost framework that can be used to develop and apply local cost models for research data management and long-term preservation . . . establishing many key “rules of thumb” for digital preservation costs and approaches to sustaining digital research data. Even those who do not wish to or cannot allocate the resources to develop local models based on KRDS are likely to benefit from its key findings and exemplars . . . ”
This provides a useful four-page summary for management discussion, as well as the larger user guide, which includes the useful case studies from Southampton, Cambridge, Kings, Oxford, UK Data Archive and elsewhere – and the model itself.
