Digital preservation community survey results published

We are pleased to announce the publication of the findings report and anonymised raw data from the OPF digital preservation community survey.

With responses gathered from 98 organisations in 31 countries, the results provide an interesting snapshot of the digital preservation landscape today.

Martin Wrigley, executive director of the OPF, says:

“These results provide important insights into the changing needs and priorities of the digital preservation community. As we celebrate our tenth year, they will inform our ongoing efforts to develop open standards and software for a community that shares a commitment to sustaining our digital legacy.”
