Community Owned digital Preservation Tool Registry (COPTR)

COPTR describes tools and workflows 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. There are 545 different tools described in COPTR.

How to use COPTR

Each tool is categorised by the Lifecycle Stage it falls within, the (sub) Function it performs and by the Content Type that it operates on. For example, EpubCheck performs the Function Validation and operates on EBook Content. COPTR can help by enabling you to browse to tools that meet a particular need - perhaps relating to a specific Content Type or Function.

How to contribute to COPTR

COPTR is a wiki and is easy to edit! It relies on contributions from the community to expand its coverage and maintain the information it holds. Don't be afraid - dive in and add new information to COPTR:
