The SCAPE Project has launched a new web based consultation and is seeking participants to help understand preservation events, threats and opportunities.
The consultation on preservation monitoring has 30 short questions which should take about 10 minutes to complete: http://survey.scape-project.eu/index.php/862812/lang-en
“Anyone willing to preserve digital content will be aware of events that might constitute a relevant risk. In SCAPE we are developing tools that will allow you to detect risks before they cause any irreversible damage,” explains Luis Faria who is leading the consultation.
“We are looking for digital content owners to participate in our online consultation and help us develop tools that would help you to automatically detect problems with your own content, and events that might put it at risk.”
The SCAPE project is developing scalable services for planning and execution of institutional preservation strategies on an open source platform that orchestrates semi-automated workflows for large-scale, heterogeneous collections of complex digital objects. SCAPE will enhance the state of the art of digital preservation in three ways: by developing infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions; by providing a framework for automated, quality-assured preservation workflows and by integrating these components with a policy-based preservation planning and watch system. These concrete project results will be validated within three large-scale Test beds from diverse application areas.
