The DPC, with help from the Scott Polar Research Institute, Portico and ULCC, and with funding from JISC, is pleased to announce the launch of the first in a series of Digital Preservation Case Notes. The Case Notes offer straightforward examples of organisations and individuals tackling the digital preservation challenges that come from mass digitization. The first describes the Scott Polar Research Institute's 'Freeze Frame' project. It makes the point that short lived projects need to do some long term thinking to ensure that the benefits of digitization are robust and it describes how a short term project negotiated its way round this long term problem.
Three more case notes are planned for the immediate future, and DPC members can preview the whole set [David says this is a members preview link and requires login].
