WP36 Actions

A list of actions that are needed to forward the work in the WP36. Our prime concern is to gather meanigful data that can provide useful conclusions on best practices and valuable business cases. To do so we need to have representative samples and to ensure participation.

Actions regarding Tasks

Task 3610 : Identification of the bodies and individuals to be contacted
  • ALL: Please provide a list of the bodies and individuals you can contact.
    • Currently we are seeking for large-scale organizations (national libraries, such as KB, BL, ON, maybe CENL could help, large academic libraries, where LIBER could help, research centers, research insitutions, coalitions, such as PASIG) and small scale insitutions that could benefit of a DP business plan.
    • We are equally interested in contacting companies that activate in the area of DP and robustly represent the participation of private sector (Tessella, IBM, Oracle, etc). . Help from Tessella colleagues would be appreciated.
  • Deadline to compile the lists:

Task 3620 : Drawing up of a web-based questionnaire
The decision was to have multiple methods to gather data. Surveys alone can not provide the wide view of exemplary business cases, so it was agreed that face to face/telephone interviews and focus groups can be also used. Survey instruments should be short and well targeted according to the sample. Yet we need some key questions to enter in a pool where they can be used according to each case.
  • ALL: Constructs to be measured. To that end we use three main areas (a: value and benefits derived from preservation, b: incentives to preserve and c: roles and responsibilities among preservation stakeholders), as well as we consult the DPimpact report (can be found attached in the main WP page).
  • ALL: Please provide questions or statements that could be used in the instruments.
  • ALL: Please write down which kind of methods you can use to gather information from the stakeholders above.
  • Deadline:

Task 3630 : Collate survey results
No particular notes for the time being.

Task 3640 : High level report of survey findings
No particular notes for the time being.
