Mason, Sarah 


This poster is about one of the deliverables of the Polonsky Foundation-funded Digital Preservation at Oxford and Cambridge Project (DPOC), which is to assess the digital preservation skills and training needs within each institution’s workforce. During the review process of existing digital preservation skills and competencies it was found that there was no auditing template to use or adapt; as a result, the DigCurV competencies were reviewed and adapted into a toolkit to enable each institution to measure digital preservation knowledge and skill sets. For the DPOC Project, the results from the completed elements of the toolkit would enable the Fellows to identify potential skill and knowledge gaps in order to develop in-house curricula. For the wider community, the toolkit is intended as a resource for developing digital curation and preservation training programmes.
