Seven people from the 4 JISC projects working on digital research preservation training materials met at LSE last week. We exchanged our findings so far and found that, although we had used different investigative techniques, we had a lot of findings in common.
We agreed to collaborate on the development of (i) a set of FAQs, (ii) advice on acceptable file formats for short-term and long-term preservation, and (iii) the design and production of a top-level brochure about the preservation of digital research data. However we all agreed that we would need to devise a better terminology than “research data preservation” for user-related training material!
