On September 8th 2015, EDINA and the ISSN International Centre hosted a workshop designed to explore the challenges of increasing preservation coverage of e-journals and related digital resources. Following the conference Taking the Long View International perspectives on E-Journal Archiving, the workshop was attended by representatives of the agencies who report into the Keepers Registry, other national libraries, and related initiatives including the Digital Preservation Coalition, the Digital Curation Centre, and UNESCO. It was organised as part of the Jisc-supported Keepers Extra Project and the key objective of the day was to scope the challenges and barriers to improving preservation coverage and to explore potential for collaborative action at an international scale.
A workshop report which documents the event is now available. The workshop discussions produced a set of common interests and challenges for the participants. We are now using the workshop outcomes as a basis for planning further research and development work to be carried out under the Keepers Extra project.
