Neil is responsible for organising and managing the JISC strand of work in the area of Digital Preservation and works closely with colleagues across a number of overlapping and adjacent areas of work in JISC, including: the Repositories programme, the Managing Research Data programme and Digital Libraries initiatives.
The scope of JISC Digital Preservation activity requires interaction with archivists and records managers in addition to digital preservation and curation practitioners, many of whom might describe themselves first and foremost in a number of other roles, e.g. repository manager, data librarian, computer scientist, etc. Cross-domain working and partnership building is therefore another essential prerequisite for taking the programme forward, both at a national and international level. The programme has also funded work in the area of cost and economic modelling in relation to the digital object lifecycle and more general issues around sustainability and green computing where it relates to the long term storage and appraisal of data.
