Cost of Inaction Calculator
This tool may assist with the decision to digitize audiovisual materials or not. From the AVPreserve website: "The Cost of Inaction Calculator [COI] is a free online tool that helps organizations analyze the implications of varying levels of preservation action when with dealing legacy audiovisual collections. COI adds a data point to ROI, or Return on Investment, and helps articulate what stands to be lost or gained in terms of access, intellect and finances based on different scenarios around digitization, physical storage, digital storage, and media longevity. This tool is not an argument to digitize everything, but rather to help decision makers make informed decisions that promote and enable progress and taking action."
