Cost-benefit analysis of preservation of the recorded heritage

From: Adrienne Muir <Adrienne.Muir>

The Library and Information in the UK has today issued an invitation
to tender for a study that will identify all cost elements and
benefits associated with the preservation of the recorded heritage.
The study should also develop a methodological framework to help
preservation managers quantify both costs and benefits.

Consultation with experts in the field in the United Kingdom
identified this area as being one of high priority for research. The
study will consider the full range of library and archive materials
supporting the written and documentary heritage of the UK, including
paper-based materials, audio-visual and microfilm. Digital material
is not included because it is already the subject of a recently
funded Library and Information Commission research project.

The tender document will be available shortly on the Web at:
