LIFE Project tackles digital preservation costing

UCL and the British Library have completed phase 1 of a JISC funded
project examining the costing of digital preservation activities. The
LIFE Project has developed a methodology for analysing and costing the
elements of a digital object's lifecycle, including preservation. It has
tested and refined this methodology by applying it to a number of case
studies. These include Voluntary Deposit of e-materials at the BL, Web
Archiving at the BL, and commercial eJournals at UCL.

A short summary of the final report can be found here: 

The Project culminated in an international conference at the British
Library, London, where the outputs and findings of the project were
presented, and a way forward beyond the lifetime of the project was
discussed. Presentations given at the conference can be found at the URL
