This poster outlines high-level findings of the international Digital Preservation Maturity, Resourcing, Policy and Strategy survey. The survey was created and run by the Digital Preservation at Oxford and Cambridge (DPOC) project, in collaboration with the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) in 2018. The purpose of the survey was to collect current information about the digital preservation maturity of organizations and their full-time equivalent (FTE) staffing resources dedicated to digital preservation activities, as well as how these FTEs are arranged. This is measured alongside organizations’ current digital preservation policy and strategy landscape. The intention is to provide up-to-date information (including the raw anonymized dataset) for organizations looking to build their own business cases and advocate for digital preservation programs.
