  6. 6. Preliminary Survey Results
  7. 7. • Ensuring there are multiple copies of data from websites in the same way there are copies of print documents in libraries across the country. • This is a huge job and not just for one community. We need to figure out how to leverage the labor / expertise of all communities and figure out how to work together to find a solution. • acquisition, preservation, and access • Ability to find and use the data that has been archived • Key issues to address include: (1) The long-term organizational structure of federal web and data archiving efforts as it moves past the grassroots stage; (2) how to identify what has already been archived elsewhere & what is held in partnerships with institution(s); and (3) the scope of the problem. • Commitment to open source, decentralized, and open data solutions, so that preservation is a process that can be made accessible to the many, not the few. • Collaborative efforts - who is working on what? • Partnerships with federal agencies, identification and adoption of existing data best practices, participation in and collaboration with the broader data community CHALLENGES
  8. 8. • I would like to see a framework for the continued preservation of federal (and possibly even state) generated research. I.E. coming up with a plan to not just save the data already in existence, but a way to continue to preserve it as new data is generated. • A cooperative group, possibly a listserv or communication tool to see what libraries are working on. • A strategic plan / roadmap for next steps to move forward on long-term preservation. Also a more comprehensive list of stakeholders and a communication plan for sharing information. • We would like to see several outcomes from the May meeting: (1) A strategic roadmap that includes future and current partners and collaborators; (2) steps towards surveying the data agreements between the government and other actors (i.e., federal data centers held in collaboration with universities and deposited data funded by federal grants in sites like ICPSR or Dryad); and (3) an outline of metadata, storage, and preservation plans that includes a survey of the standards and options already available today. •Partnerships between archiving institutions centered around collaborative, open metadata curation goals. •Agreed upon collaborative effort and plan •A path towards a cross-data-community partnership in service of data stability OUTCOMES
