FEDORA PRESERVATION SOLUTIONS COMMUNITY

SURVEY ON PRESERVATION NEEDS

The Fedora Preservation Solutions Community – a newly-formed group that will soon be launched for public participation - would appreciate your responses to a short survey (est. completion time is 5 to 10 minutes). We are interested in gathering information about and examples of digital preservation developments, practice, and needs regarding the management of digital content in repositories, specifically using open source software like Fedora. We hope to share the results of the survey in a BOF session at the 4th International Conference on Open Repositories (May 18 – 21, 2009) in Atlanta, GA. We will continue to share updates and information both online and at other conference venues such as the Sun PASIG forums, iPres 2009, and the Preservation Section of the Society of American Archivists. Note that we encourage you to fill out the survey, regardless of the type of platform you are using or plan to use.

The Preservation Solutions Community has an online presence at Fedora Commons to gather and share information about preservation developments and to encourage, the awareness, development, and reuse of relevant services, software, and technology. If you are interested in participating in this community, please respond to question 8 on the survey or contact a member of the core team (see below). For more information, you may also want to consult the Fedora Commons Solutions Community Wiki.
