Welcome to the OPF Knowledge Base Wiki

The OPF wiki is here to gather knowledge relating to key issues in digital preservation and organise these to allow practitioners, developers and information specialists to better preserve digital heritage. This wiki welcomes contributions from every member of the community and provides a hosting space for many global projects. From practitioners, we welcome your use case scenarios and problems and hope to link these with solution providers. For developers, we not only hope to join you to practitioners in the community through online and face-to-face events, but also welcome your valuable solutions with advice on software development, project hosting and distribution. Gathering together communities and key knowledge allows information managers to make effective decisions for preserving our digital heritage.
