Retention information & bibliographic metadata
A community consultation on behalf of the Jisc Collection Management Community Advisory Board (CMCAB).

A draft working paper was produced by the University of York, initially for internal discussion, which we felt was useful to share more widely. While the paper does not reflect any concrete decisions it raises issues and ideas which are useful. Please read the paper, 'University of York 583/983 Best Practice' available from the blog post link below before completing this survey.

Following this survey, the CMCAB will produce recommendations and seek to encourage the community to work towards the adoption of common principles and goals in this area.

The survey will be open until close of business on Friday 28th June
