A few months back several members of the National Digital Stewardship Alliance’s Levels of Digital Preservation team presented a short paper at Archiving 2013, The NDSA Levels of Digital Preservation: An Explanation and Uses. While the Levels of Digital Preservation will continue to be refined and improved we are thrilled to report that they are already being used (as designed) as a tool to facilitate planning and decision making about getting to work mitigating the most pressing risks to digital assets.
In this respect, I was happy to hear from John Faundeen, an Archivist with the U.S. Geological Survey who recently used the Levels to inform the development of USGS Digital Science Data Preservation Guidelines. I am thrilled to take this chance to chat with John about what he has found useful about the levels and how he is making use of them.
