  3. 3. Stakeholders in Digital Preservation Agreed: Data creators -DP is important (advancement of science, re-use Data managers and re-analysis, validation) -But work is done in a fragmented way Publishers -So we need Funders -more co-ordination -a sustainable science data infrastructure Citizens -to define roles and responsibilities -to develop business models ParseInsight Final Report 2010 http://www.parse-insight.eu/publications.php#d3-6 ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011

  5. 5. Libraries DP A lot of other challenges than DP (digitisation, access)  But perhaps we should be bolder in re-setting our priorities Europeana does not mention preservation in its 2011 business plan Not enough co-ordination and sharing of best practices needed (not just a champions league) No comprehensive and sustainable e-infrastructure in Europe to ensure long-term access to research outputs ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011
  6. 6. Europeana aggregator 1 aggregator 2 aggregator 3Lib 1 Lib 2 Lib 3 Mus 1 Mus 2 Mus 3 Arch 1 Arch 2 ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011
  7. 7. Sustainability issues Europeana: OK for now (EC), but in the future? Aggregators: OK for now (members), but in the future?  Some institutions work with several aggregators, so can choose!  Unsustainable aggregators will disappear Individual institutions: OK ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011
  8. 8. Europeana Libraries EC funded project, 2 years 5 million digitised objects will be made available through Europeana incl.  Books (incl. books digitised by Google)  Special collections  Audiovisual materials  More than 200,000 OA research theses (via DART Europe)  More than 270,000 OA scholarly articles (via DOAJ) ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011
  9. 9. Europeana Libraries (2) From 19 leading research libraries: Bavarian State Library, Hungarian Parliament Library, Nat.

  10. 10. Europeana Libraries: sustainability Economies of scale:  46 national libraries  400+ national + research Economies of scope: libraries  Aggregator  aggregator + other services (tools and services for researchers, DP, innovation …?)  Other content (raw data, …) relevant for R&E ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011
  11. 11. Europeana Libraries: sustainability (2) New funding model needed New governance neededImportant because some institutions work with several aggregators, so can choose! ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011

  13. 13. Requirements for sustainable DPBRTF, Final Report, p.12Applied to Europeana Libraries: Recognition of the benefits of DP Procedure for selection Incentives to preserve in public interest Appropriate governance of DP activities Ongoing, efficient allocation of resources ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011

  16. 16. Opportunities for data exchange http://www.ode-project.eu/ Data sharing is  smart: it is efficient, avoids duplication, stimulates the advancement of science  about transparency: it allows re-analysis  about enrichment: it adds value to traditional publications  rewarding: requirement for publicly funded research Roles and responsibilities: researchers, publishers, funders, libraries and data centres ESDI Round Table, Tallinn, 26 May 2011
