EDItEUR is participating in an EC-sponsored project called DCH-RP (Digital Cultural Heritage – A Roadmap for Preservation). The project aims to map out a coherent approach to preservation strategies for cultural heritage institutions (museums, galleries, libraries, etc.) coping with fast-increasing collections of digitized artefacts and information. At the heart of the proposed approach is a shared DCH preservation infrastructure utilizing advanced Cloud- and Grid-based infrastructures and federated access methods.
EDItEUR’s particular role in DCH-RP is to act as a bridge between the cultural heritage domain and the publishing world, broadly defined. In one specific part of the work, we are trying to determine factors that would predispose publishers toward partnerships with cultural heritage institutions utilizing the kind of infrastructure envisaged by the project.
To research these factors and validate ideas that we have developed, we would be really grateful if our colleagues would take a short time to respond to an online survey, sharing your views or assessments of these topics. To participate in the survey, please click on this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/23CPR9D.
Personal and organizational identities will be anonymized in any published results and we will only involve you further if you indicate that you would like either to hear more about the project or receive a summary of the results. But the results obtained will be very valuable in influencing and directing the advice that DCH-RP is seeking to provide.
The closing date for our data gathering is Monday 28th April.
