Library of Congress Releases Digital Preservation Survey Results

The Library of Congress’ (LC) digital preservation blog, The Signal, announced the completion of the “2014 DPOE Training Needs Assessment Survey” from the LC’s DPOE (Digital Preservation Outreach & Education) program. The survey explores the state of digital preservation practice and how organizations and professionals can do preservation work. It received 436 responses from libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and other related organizations, as well as an increased response over previous years from state governments.

“The questions addressed issues like primary function (library, archive, museum, etc.), staff size and responsibilities, collection items, preferred training content and delivery options and financial support for professional development and training,” writes Barrie Howard, IT project manager at the LC. “The most significant takeaways are: 1) an overwhelming expression of concern that respondents ensure their digital content is accessible for 10 or more years (84%), and; 2) evidence of a strong commitment to support employee training opportunities (83%).” Howard discusses the survey’s other findings in his blog post.
