Just a reminder that the SPN metadata practices survey closes tomorrow, April 28. Thank you to those who have already responded!
The Software Preservation Network (SPN) is an initiative to explore and establish partnerships, collaborations, and best practices for software preservation. The SPN Metadata Working Group is currently conducting a survey of institutions with digital preservation programs to gain insight into metadata practices for software and other digital objects. The results of this survey will be used to establish a baseline for metadata best practices for software.
Please consider completing this very short survey about metadata practices in use at your institution. We are looking for responses both from institutions collecting software and those who have yet to begin this kind of work.
The survey is available at: http://bit.ly/SPN-MD-Survey until April 28.
