Report: Digital preservation in the regions
Digital preservation in the regions is a report based on a "sample survey of digital preservation preparedness and needs of organisations at local and regional levels An assessment carried out from December 2004 to March 2005" by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) in the United Kingdom. The nine key findings from the survey include the fact that long-term "management of digital material needs to be more firmly and clearly embedded in corporate planning processes and strategic thinking and planning." Besides discussing the key findings, the 30-page report also lays out a series of fourteen action points.
