Bottom Line: Ensuring the survival of digital assets at the University of Glasgow Through: Developing a sustainable business focussed model for digital preservation at an FE/HE Institution.
What we are NOT doing Creating a preservation policy Solving everyone’s problems Solving technical problems Securing funds to create an eUniversity
Effectively Preserving Sustainable actions Digital preservation at the core of strategic thinking and planning Modelling costs, benefits, roles, responsibilities, risks.
Your Assets We need to understand them within an ‘Institutional whole’ To ensure what you have of value remains To ensure management of a Universities’ assets (preservation/destruction)
Plan of action Engagement Events (meetings, workshops, interviews) Strategic Model in Action Dissemination of model
What can your role be? Meetings, input, model evaluation/ development HELP US Requirements Desire Stakeholder champions Focus Groups Questionnaire Needs
Beyond Glasgow Not just Glasgow model. Rest of HE/FE. Discussion on suitability of model for other insitutions. Dissemination of solutions, issues, problems. Case study of creation and implementation of model – step-by-step guide?
Who cares? Should we care? Is every department/individual happy that they can be the guardians of what they have? Should the University care? Does it believe it is doing enough?
