Research output: Other contribution


In 2017, the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) received completed survey responses from 133 institutions engaged in digital preservation, enabling the Staffing Survey Working Group to investigate how these organizations staffed and organized their digital preservation functions, and to identify any changes since the NDSA’s 2012 survey1 on the same topic, published in “Staffing for Effective Digital Preservation: An NDSA Report.”2 We received 78% of the responses from the US, down from 86% in the 2012 survey. Other countries responding were the United Kingdom (8), Germany (4), Switzerland (3), the Netherlands (2), and one each from Australia, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Luxembourg, Pakistan, Slovenia, Sweden, and Uruguay.
