Mar'15: Getting to the Bottom Line: 20 Cost Questions for Digital Preservation (ASERL)

Wed, Mar 11, 2015 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT

For academic libraries and other cultural memory organizations, finding clear pricing and cost information for digital preservation services can be a daunting and sometimes frustrating endeavor. In this webinar, Aaron Trehub from the Alabama Digital Preservation Network (ADPNet) and Matt Schultz from the MetaArchive Cooperative will share the results of a project they have undertaken in recent months in collaboration with colleagues at academic libraries, to produce what they hope will be a helpful guide for gathering information on the cost of digital preservation solutions. "Getting to the Bottom Line: 20 Questions Every Organization Should Ask About the Cost of Digital Preservation" is a free and simple resource geared towards helping institutions ask the right questions of service providers to ensure the best fit when it comes to choosing a digital preservation solution.
