As part of ASERL's ongoing series of webinars/discussions about digital preservation topics, we are pleased to present "Getting to the Bottom Line: 20 Cost Questions for Digital Preservation."
For academic libraries and other cultural memory organizations, finding clear pricing and cost information for digital preservation services can be a daunting and sometimes frustrating endeavor. In this webinar, Aaron Trehub from the Alabama Digital Preservation Network (ADPNet) and Matt Schultz from the MetaArchive Cooperative share the results of a project they have undertaken in recent months in collaboration with colleagues at academic libraries to produce a helpful guide for gathering information on the cost of digital preservation solutions.
"Getting to the Bottom Line: 20 Questions Every Organization Should Ask About the Cost of Digital Preservation" is a free and simple resource geared towards helping institutions ask the right questions of service providers to ensure the best fit when it comes to choosing a digital preservation solution.
