Hi Hilton,

I agree that sustainability is going to be a key issue over the next decade or so. The European Commission-funded Collaboration to Clarify the costs of Curation (4C) project is working to organisations to invest more effectively in digital curation and preservation. The project is developing a curation costs exchange (CCEx) to help people to make sense of their costs and judge whether they are good investments. A beta version of the CCEx is being released in early August. If any members of the list are interested in learning more or testing the platform I’d be happy to give you more details.


All the best,

Subject: [Irtalk] Trip report: Peter Sefton @ Open Repositories 2014, Helsinki, Finland | ptsefton

Summary: For me the take-away was that now we have a repository ecosystem developing, and the OR catchment extends further and further beyond the library, sustainability is the big issue , and conversations around sustainability of research data repositories in particular are going to be key to the next few iterations of this conference. Sustainability might make a good theme or sub-theme. Related to sustainability is risk; how do we reduce the risk of the data equivalent of the serials crisis if there is such a crisis it won’t look the same, so how we will stop it?
