Creating a Community Owned digital Preservation Tool Registry (COPTR)

Creating a Community Owned digital Preservation Tool Registry (COPTR) 

Last year I blogged about my frustrations related to digital preservation tool registries. Rather than pooling all of our knowledge in one place and creating a valuable community resource, we’ve spread our knowledge about tools thinly across the web. Instead of seeing collaboration between organisations working in digital preservation, we’re actually seeing competition! Virtually every organisation involved in the field promotes it’s own registry or tool list. This is a ridiculous state of affairs. As I observed at IPRES last year in my least eloquent but most frequently quoted moment, it’s a big fail for our community
