[ARSCLIST] Planets Long-term Management of Information Survey
***Apologies for Cross Postings***Planets Long-term Management of Information Survey Organisations in Europe that create or hold digital content are invited to take part in a survey to test requirements of Planets’ products and services so that these can be packaged and delivered in a way best suited to meet institutions’ needs. Planets (Preservation and Long-term Access through Distributed Networks) has issued a survey to each of 96 National Libraries and Archives in Europe plus intermediary institutions in EC member countries. The survey is open to any institution with an interest in retaining and accessing digital content.Individuals or institutions who wish to take part can find out more and complete the survey at: http://www.planets-project.eu/market-survey. Results are collated automatically when the form is submitted. You cannot save an electronic copy but can print the completed form off for your records. The survey will be open until 23:59 on 16 March 2009.The results will be published in the summer of 2009. They will inform the packaging and delivery of Planets tools and services to meet demand. They will also be used to help shape the framework that will ensure Planets outputs continue to provide benefits to their users after the project ends in May 2010. Planets is a four-year project co-funded by the European Commission and 16 National Libraries, Archives, research and technology institutions in Europe. The project will establish a suite of tools and services to support and substantially automate the preservation process. The project’s outputs will be vital to ensuring institutions in Europe can preserve their digital information and access it in the long-term.
