Assessing Institutional Digital Assets
AIDA is a self-assessment tool for describing institutional readiness and capabilities for digital asset management and digital preservation. The tool takes into account different states of institutional preparedness when recommending options or highlighting threats to assets.
The AIDA toolkit will:
- Enable institutions to perform self-assessment of their readiness for digital asset management and digital preservation
- Suggest options and strategies for each stage of institutional readiness
- Provide recommendations on how to improve institutional readiness
- Produce a decision tool for assessing assets which takes into account institutional readiness
- Explore decisions relating to preservation options and their effect on costs
- Provide indications of the possible costs of digital preservation, based on these outputs
- Introduction to Self-Assessment: an introduction to the toolkit, and to the five-stage and three-leg models it was built on. Includes explanatory notes on digital assets and their management.
- The AIDA Toolkit: the wiki version of AIDA. It offers a single page for each element, combining the self-assessment task with suggested self-help actions and links to available tools (external resources) for the job.
- Scoring: (under construction)
- External Resources: the collection of External Resources referenced in the Self-Help sections of The AIDA Toolkit.
