Participants were invited to contribute answers for the PresQT research study, entitled “Data and Software Preservation Quality Tool Needs Assessment”. In the Summer of 2017 PresQT conducted a needs analysis related to data and software preservation. Participant's answers contribute to a better understanding of what tools and/or tool suites would be of benefit those who aim to better preserve data and software.
