Community Owned digital Preservation Tool Registry (COPTR)

COPTR describes tools useful for preserving digital information for the long term. COPTR is also an initiative to collate the knowledge of the digital preservation community on preservation tools in one place. Instead of organisations competing against each other with their own registries, COPTR is bringing them together. In doing so it's objective is to provide the best resource for practitioners on digital preservation tools.

There are 446 different tools described in COPTR.
