International Digital Preservation Systems Survey

In case you haven't seen this from Karim and Sally at the Getty. The deadline for participating is this Friday, March 30.

We invite you to participate in the online International Digital Preservation Systems Survey:


This survey is intended to provide an overview of digital preservation system (DPS) implementation. DPS is defined here as an assembly of computer hardware, software and policies equivalent to a TDR (trusted digital repository) “whose mission is to provide reliable, long-term access to managed digital resources to its designated community, now, and in the future”[1].

The survey was produced by the Getty Research Institute departments of Digital Resource Management and Library Information Systems, and will be distributed primarily among members of the Digital Library Federation (DLF). Results will be shared at the DLF Spring Forum, April 23-25, 2007 (Pasadena, California, USA) , and with all respondents who provide contact information.

Please respond by March 30, 2007.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
