Market Survey: Publications Private Page

Survey Analysis Report
Pauline Sinclair and Lewis Jardine, Tessella Technology and Consulting

The market survey was carried out to ascertain the status and requirements of long-term management of digital information by European organisations that create or hold digital content.
Over 200 responses were received from a wide range of organisations with respondents representing a variety of different fields. Overall, two-fifths were from libraries and one third from archives.
The results show that there is a widespread awareness of the need to take practical steps to preserve the rapidly increasing volumes of digital content; however, many organisations are still seeking the technical and practical solutions to support their preservation-specific activities.
