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.
COPTR is supported by Aligning National Approaches to Digital Preservation (ANADP), The Open Planets Foundation (OPF), The National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA), The Digital Curation Centre (DCC), The Digital Curation Exchange (DCE) and the Preserving digital Objects With Restricted Resources project (POWRR). The data in COPTR was collated from registries run by these organisations. It was produced with support from the Jisc funded SPRUCE Project.
COPTR is hosted by the Open Planets Foundation and is maintained by you!
