CRL Opens PAPR Dashboard for Public Comment
The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) added a dashboard to the Print Archives Preservation Registry (PAPR) system, which supports the archiving and management of serials collections. The dashboard is now in beta, and CRL is soliciting feedback (email Amy Wood, director of technical services, at email@example.com). It will help users measure the scope and progress of North American print archives via the following features:
- A comparison of the number of print titles registered as archived, to the known output of print serials publication;
- A breakdown of titles preserved, by major subject classification;
- An indication of the amount of redundancy of titles held by multiple repositories;
- “Trust metrics,” or information about the policies and practices of archiving efforts, such as the level of holdings validation, the degree to which archiving commitments are formalized, and the depth of program services and resources.
For more information, read the press release.
