Final Report on Retention and Preservation

The Final Report on Retention and Preservation (PDF) is now available. This brings together the CCM work on retention and preservation and sets out a series of recommendations which, taken together, would provide the framework required for a distributed National Research Collection of Monographs.

The report includes a proposal for a metadata framework based on MARC tag 583 and the associated vocabulary Preservation and Digitization Actions. The Proposed Metadata Framework (PDF) is also available separately.
