Free Public DPC Self-Assessment Goes Live

I am delighted to announce that the free, public version of the Digital Preservation Capability Self-Assessment web application is LIVE.  Thanks to my business partner, Charles Dollar, for his engagement and guidance, and to Informatics, Inc. for bringing this benchmarking tool to life.

We are grateful to the Council of State Archivists (CoSA) and to the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) for permission to use the scoring logic we developed for CoSA in 2012.  It is our hope that information, records and archives management practitioners will use the tool to raise awareness about long-term digital continuity requirements and standards.
