Planets Long-term Management of Information Survey

Return to Planets News

Organisations in Europe that create or hold digital content are invited to take part in a survey to test requirements of Planets' products and services so that these can be packaged and delivered in a way best suited to meet institution's needs.

Planets has invited each of 96 National Libraries and Archives in Europe plus intermediary institutions in EC member countries Planets (Preservation and Long-term Access through Distributed Networks) to take part in the survey. It is open to any institution with an interest in retaining and accessing digital content in the long-term.

The results of the survey will be published in summer 2009. They will help to inform the packaging and delivery of Planets tools and services to meet demand. They will also be used to establish the framework that will ensure Planets outputs continue to provide benefits to their users after the project ends in May 2010.

Individuals or institutions who wish to take part can find the survey at:

Results will be collated automatically when the form is submitted. While you cannot save an electronic copy you can print the completed form off for your records. The closing date for the survey is 23:59 on 16 March 2009.

Planets is a four-year project co-funded by the European Commission and 16 National Libraries, Archives, research and technology institutions in Europe. The project will establish a suite of tools and services to support and substantially automate the preservation process. The project's outputs will be vital to ensuring institutions in Europe can preserve their digital information and access it in the long-term.
