The MRC has been named one of the “Ten Promising Digital Preservation Initiatives” by RLG:
This [MRC] is not a digital preservation research project, per se, but metadata is a cost center for all digital projects, including digital preservation. Research such as this can make long-term access more feasible by reducing metadata costs while improving metadata quality. Note the publications list on the website. The model for this research center is one that should be replicated to focus on other core research issues.
