spruceSPRUCE (Sustainable PReservation Using Community Engagement) was a collaborative project funded by Jisc and led by the University of Leeds. It offered a series of 'Mash-up' events throughout 2012 and 2013 to put developers and collection owners in touch with each other. DPC supported elements of community engagement in digital preservation and in particular was charged with working up elements of a business case for preservation. Visit the SPRUCE website for more information.

Project highlights:

  • Digital Preservation Requirements and Solutions: A living archive of digital preservation practice that captures the preservation challenges faced by over a 100 practitioners from Libraries, Archives, Museums, Galleries and other organisations.
  • COPTR: A registry of digital preservation tools to help practitioners find the software tools they need to solve particular challenges.
  • The Digital Preservation Business Case Toolkit: A comprehensive toolkit to help practitioners and middle managers build business cases to fund digital preservation activities.
