CDRC featured in the DPC report on ‘Preserving Transactional Data’

A case study of our Output Area Classification Data has featured in a report by The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC). Titled ‘Preserving Transactional Data’ the reports are commissioned after consultation among DPC members about shared priorities and challenges in digital preservation, are commissioned from experts and are thoroughly scrutinized by peers before being released. The authors are asked to provide reports that are informed, current, concise and balanced and that lower the barriers to participation in digital preservation.

The reports are a distinctive and lasting contribution to the dissemination of good practice in digital preservation.  The Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) inputs were provided by our Project Manager, Sarah Sheppard, and Deputy Director, Alex Singleton.

The report is published by the DPC in association with Charles Beagrie Ltd. Neil Beagrie, Director of Consultancy at Charles Beagrie Ltd, was commissioned to act as principal investigator for, and managing editor of, this Series in 2011. He has been further supported by an Editorial Board drawn from DPC members and peer reviewers who comment on text prior to release: William Kilbride (Chair), Janet Delve (University of Portsmouth), Marc Fresko (Inforesight), Sarah Higgins (University of Aberystwyth), Tim Keefe (Trinity College Dublin), and Dave Thompson (Wellcome Library).
