Previous involvement with KRDS
23/04/2014http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk3 How we can foresee use of the Benefits Framework As a repository we often have to help justify the costs/effort associated with digital preservation. The benefits worksheet (and associated guide) helps explain the benefits in structured and meaningful fashion.

23/04/2014http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk5 The issue of value in archaeology is key IFA and the Southampton report Difficult to articulate the meaning of value in different subject areas How we can foresee use of the Value Chain
23/04/2014http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk6 Value chain can help identify the different values for different audiences The quantification of impact can help in a number of ways a. In research bid terms, it helps justify resources b. In archive preparation terms it helps with selection and retention decisions How we can foresee use of the Value Chain 2
