JISC Digital Preservation Benefits Tools Project Dissemination Workshop12-Jul-11London South Bank University

The Digital Preservation Benefit Analysis Tools project is funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and runs from 1 February to 31 July 2011.

The project has tested and reviewed the combined use of the Keeping Research Data Safe (KRDS) Benefits Framework and the Value Chain and Impact Analysis tool, which were first applied in the I2S2 project for assessing the benefits and impact of digital preservation of research data. We have extended their utility to, and adoption within, the JISC community by providing user review and guidance for the tools and creating an integrated toolset. The project consortium consists of a mix of user institutions, projects, and disciplinary data services committed to the testing and exploitation of these tools and the lead partners in their original creation.
