Benchmarks for Digital Preservation tools

Benchmarks for Digital Preservation tools. Kresimir Duretec, et al. Vienna University of Technology and University of Toronto. October 2015.
     "Creation and improvement of tools for digital preservation is a di cult task without an established way to assess any progress in their quality." Software benchmarking is used to "provide objective evidence about the quality of software tools" but the digital preservation field is "still missing a proper adoption of that method." This paper looks at benchmarks and proposes a model for digital preservation and a standardized way to "objectively compare various software tools relevant to the digital preservation community."
