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 by 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.
A project Web site and the project plan are available and further outputs will be available from the Web site during the summer. The project partners are UKOLN and the Digital Curation Centre at the University of Bath, Centre for Health Informatics and Multi-professional Education (CHIME) at University College London, UK Data Archive (University of Essex), Archaeology Data Service (University of York), OCLC Research, and Charles Beagrie Limited.
Details concerning the Workshop programme, venue and registration are all available from the UKOLN Web site.
