Digital Repository Audit Method Based on Risk Assessment (DRAMBORA) 
toolkit: online interactive version released & auditor’s courses 
announced

The Digital Curation Centre (DCC, http://www.dcc.ac.uk) and 
DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE, http://www.digitalpreservationeurope.eu) 
are delighted to announce:

- the Digital RepositoryAudit Method Based on Risk Assessment
 (DRAMBORA) toolkit is now freely available in a new updated
 interactive version at http://www.repositoryaudit.eu
 <http://www.repositoryaudit.eu/>

- the first of a series of training courses for new DRAMBORA
 auditors, 13th to the 17th of October 2008 in Prague, Czech
 Republic.

The DRAMBORA Online Interactive Toolkit
Based on practical research and recognizing current approaches and 
standards, DRAMBORA provides a method for self-assessment for digital 
curation professionals. It facilitates internal audit by providing 
repository administrators with a means to assess their capabilities, 
identify their weaknesses, and recognise their strengths, complementing 
other emerging work on attributes and criteria for Trustworthy Digital 
Repositories. DRAMBORA can be utilised by a broad range of digital 
repositories, digital libraries and digital archives, including those 
repositories whose mandates do not yet include responsibility for 
long-term digital preservation.

Since its release, an increasing number of international organizations, 
such as national libraries, scientific data centres, museums and 
archival institutions (including British Library, National Archives of 
Scotland, Netarkivet, Gallica - Bibliothèque nationale de France, CERN 
Document Server, Nationaal Archief Netherlands, Kungliga Biblioteket – 
Sveriges nationalbibliotek, MBooks Michigan-Google Digitization Project, 
U.S. Geological Survey) have used DRAMBORA. You can find out more about 
DRAMBORA and the experiences of its users at 
http://www.repositoryaudit.eu/dissemination/.

The developers of DRAMBORA have or have had active collaborations with 
the following international initiatives and projects:

- Trustworthy Repository Audit and Certification (TRAC) Criteria and
  Checklist Working Group
- Center for Research Libraries (CRL) Certification of Digital
  Archives Project
- Network of Expertise in Long-term storage of Digital Resources
  (nestor)
- DELOS Network of Excellence in Digital Libraries
- International Audit and Certification Birds of a Feather Group
- SHAMAN (Sustaining Heritage Access through Multivalent ArchiviNg)
- Working Group of ISO TC46 /SC 11

DRAMBORA was developed collaboratively by the DCC (funded by the Joint 
Information Systems Committee and the Core eScience Programme run by 
EPSRC on behalf of all the Research Councils in the UK) and DPE 
(co-funded by the European Commission). These two initiatives will 
continue to work together to support the refinement of toolkit, to 
manage the online interactive tool, and to foster its widest possible 
take-up within the United Kingdom, Europe and broader international 
contexts.
