File formats factors, notification and recommendation

Share

university_denverHeather Ryan, PhD, an Assistant Professor in the Library and Information Science Program in the University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education, launched a survey designed to collect information on file format evaluation factors, and perceptions of trust and usefulness of a semi-automatic file format warning and recommendation system.

 

Results will be used to inform the development of a file format endangerment index, and to inform the development of a semi-automated file format endangerment warning and recommendation system.  Data collected for this study will be examined for identifying information and de-identified data will be shared via a data repository for use in future research.
