Apologies for any cross-posting

The findings from the Keeping Research Data Safe 2 (“KRDS2) survey of
digital preservation cost information are now available on the KRDS2
project webpage <>.

One of the core aims of the KRDS2 project was to identify potential
sources of cost information for preservation of digital research data
and to conduct a survey of them. Between September and November 2009 we
made an open invitation via email lists and the project blog and project
webpage for others to contact us and contribute to the data survey if
they had research datasets and associated cost information that they
believe may be of interest to the study.

13 survey responses were received: 11 of these were from UK-based
collections, and 2 were from mainland Europe. Two further potential
contributions from the USA were unfortunately not available in time to
be included.

The responses covered a broad area of research including the arts and
humanities, social sciences, and physical and biological sciences and
research data archives or cultural heritage collections. Each survey
response is approximately 6-8 pages in length.

A summary analysis plus individual completed responses to the data
survey that provide more detail, are available on the project website or
directly from the links below.

We have also made the revised versions of KRDS2 activity model available
to download.

Please feel free to circulate this announcement to other colleagues and
lists who you think may have an interest.
