RESOURCE: Digital Preservation Tool Grid

Preserving (Digital) Objects With Restricted Resources (POWRR) has created a useful grid that tracks 24 different features of over 45 digital preservation tools, ranging from the very basic (e.g. Dropbox) to powerful, full-service platforms (e.g. Portico). The information was culled from tool websites, contacting the tool developers directly, discussion boards, and some direct tool testing, and POWRR also includes a short biography for each tool.

This post was produced through a cooperation between Lauren Gottlieb-Miller, Chella Vaidyanathan and Amy Wickner (Editors-at-Large for the week), Zach Coble (dh+lib review editor for the week), and Sarah Potvin and Roxanne Shirazi (site editors).
