Book now for The Digital Preservation Coalition briefing day entitled 'Good Practice Takes Practice: Certification and Accreditation for Digital Preservation' in London on 9th January 2018.
This workshop will examine practical experience with archive accreditation which, since 2017, has involved an explicit component derived in turn from the NDSA levels of Digital Preservation. It will also introduce and explore important developments in the Data Seal of Approval and World Data System which were relaunched and revised in 2017 as the new Core Trust Seal for Trustworthy Data Repositories. It will introduce the ‘Nestor Seal’, a preservation certification based on DIN31644 and offered as a paid for service through nestor and the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek. A central consideration in the discussions will be the development of consistent frameworks for continuous quality improvement in the management of digital collections. This theme might be summarized as ‘good practice takes practice’.
