Contribute to an ERS Community Project!

Please take this short survey to contribute to the 2019 ERS Community Project! The survey closes on Friday, March 29.

In December 2018, the ERS Steering Committee put out a call for ideas for a 2019 ERS community project. We’re thankful for the community input and are pleased to announce that we’re building a master list of digital archives and digital preservation resources that can be used for reference, or to provide a resource overlay for existing best practice and workflow documentation. The Committee has begun compiling resources and thinking about how they connect, but broader input is essential to this project’s success.

At this stage, we are interested in getting a sense of what the most useful resources are in our community. Please take our survey to share your top three go-to resources as well as any areas of electronic records work that you feel lack guidance and documentation. We are thinking of resources broadly, so feel free to suggest your three favorite journal articles, blogs, handbooks, workflows, tools and manuals, or any other style of resource that helps you process and preserve born-digital collections.

After the survey closes on Friday, March 29, we’ll compile and share the results. We also hope to eventually open up a community documentation space where anyone can add to our current list of resources. Once the data collection period is over, we’ll determine the best way to share a more polished version of this resource list.

On behalf of the ERS Steering Committee, thank you for participating!
