Hi MCN List Members,

The Digital Preservation Oxford and Cambridge (DPOC) project in collaboration 
with the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) has developed a short survey 
intended to gather information from collecting and research organisations 
around the world who have a remit to manage digital content. The survey has a 
particular focus on staffing resources, but also briefly covers policy, 
strategy, and maturity modelling. We would very much like to receive some 
responses from those working in the museum and gallery sectors.

We are aware that concrete information for benchmarking institutions against 
their peers - particularly in regards to maturity and staffing resources - is 
required by those looking to make the case for digital preservation within 
their organisations. We are interested in obtaining figures from institutions 
around the world, regardless of an institution’s size or whether any digital 
preservation effort has already commenced. We are particularly keen to obtain 
information from institutions based outside of the USA.

We would be very grateful if you would take the time to fill out our survey:

The survey should take between 10-20 minutes to complete. Deadline for survey 
responses is: 31 May 2018
(Though we would very much appreciate input earlier than this date.)

Further information can be found at: 
Anonymised raw data will be shared via the DPOC website for all in the digital 
preservation community to use, in August 2018: http://www.dpoc.ac.uk/
Any questions about the survey can be directed to: 

Apologies for cross-postings.

Many thanks
