Because good research needs good data


DCC workshops may combine case studies, presentations and/or interactive breakout sessions to explore some of the more complex issues affecting digital curators today.

Usable and practical cost models are essential for long-term, sustainable digital curation and preservation efforts. In conjunction with the Digital Preservation Coalition we held a one-day workshop that explored cost models for long-term curation at the British Library, London. At this event we provided case studies outlining practical examples of cost models currently being developed and overviews of international research activities looking into the development of cost models.

This event focused on practical tools and approaches that are currently being used or developed to assist with the long-term curation of digital information within digital repositories. In particular, this event examined ingest processes, description of digital information, preservation activity and certification efforts and how they can impact the long-term usability of digital information.
