Community Owned digital Preservation Tool Registry (COPTR)

COPTR describes tools useful for long term digital preservation. It primarily acts as a finding and evaluation tool to help practitioners discover the tools they need to perform particular preservation tasks. COPTR is collating 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 449 different tools described in COPTR.

How to create a new Tool Entry

  1. Check out these Guidelines for contributing to COPTR.
  2. Search for the tool you want. Check the full name and the acronym!
  3. If you find it, consider adding more detail to the existing entry. If you don't find it, follow the link to create a new entry, which will automatically create a outline entry for your tool based on the Tool Page Template.
