We are writing to invite you to participate in a brief online survey about digital preservation practices at digital scholarship centers (including digital humanities centers) in the United States. This survey is primarily multiple choice, and we anticipate it will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. 

This research is focused on digital scholarship centers, including digital humanities labs, and target participants are digital scholarship center employees at US colleges and universities. We encourage you to review the PDF of the survey linked at You may use it as a worksheet to prepare a response before completing the survey. Please feel free to consult with colleagues as needed. 

If you are not able to complete the survey in one sitting, you may return to the survey and resume where you left off. (Note: You will need to use the same computer and Web browser each time you access the survey and have cookies enabled.)

If you have not already, please complete the survey at your earliest convenience, but no later than October 21, 2019.
