Common Testing Environments
Planning and implementing your digital preservation strategy must base on techniques and tools appropriate for your requirements. APARSEN is setting-up a collection of testbeds which will include testing procedures and test data, together with test software if appropriate, which can be used to provide a common measure for digital preservation techniques. The latest report summarises the test environments which have been examined and the proposed common testing approach, and also provides a framework within which to evaluate the efficacy and applicability of proposed preservation tools and techniques.
