Earlier this year NDSA requested your participation in a survey about your institution’s current fixity practices. The NDSA Fixity Survey Working Group is happy to announce the publication of the 2017 Fixity Survey Report. The report summarizes the results of the 2017 survey, including both broad trends and detailed information captured in the survey about respondent’s fixity practices. The Fixity Survey Working Group would like to thank the 89 organizations who took the time to complete the survey and provide the community with information around these issues.
The report and survey data is available on the Fixity Survey’s OSF page. [https://osf.io/snjbv/]
Future work to develop case studies around individual organization’s fixity practices is expected. If you are interested in activities like this, or in joining with other organizations committed to the long-term preservation of digital information?
