DCC DIFFUSE Standards Frameworks
The DCC DIFFUSE Standards Frameworks were developed in partnership with a number of organisations with the aim of presenting searchable frameworks of standards relevant to digital curation and preservation.
Although no further work on DIFFUSE is planned, frameworks that were created remain an accessible and relevant resource. These include frameworks developed from existing publications or specifications as well as those developed specifically for the DIFFUSE project
