Digital Repository Audit Method Based on Risk Assessment

via ResourceShelf

I thought this might be interesting for anyone looking to evaluate or develop a digital preservation project. This is a pretty large document (221p.) but it does contain a lot of good guidelines on what aspects you should look up before starting a digital preservation project. Here’s a blurb from the Digital Curation Centre web site:

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC) and DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE) are delighted to announce the release of the Digital Repository Audit Method Based on Risk Assessment (DRAMBORA) toolkit. This toolkit is intended to facilitate internal audit by providing repository administrators with a means to assess their capabilities, identify their weaknesses, and recognise their strengths. Digital repositories are still in their infancy and this model is designed to be responsive to the rapidly developing landscape. The development of the toolkit follows a concentrated period of repository pilot audits undertaken by the DCC, conducted at a diverse range of organisations including national libraries, scientific data centres and cultural and heritage data archives.

You can download the toolkit here, but it requires a quick registration on the top right corner.
