The DCC methodology builds on existing work. It complements the Dutch, DELOS and Planets testbed methodologies by extending evaluation to consider use cases. Curation activities cannot be evaluated independent of context. To truly understand the usefulness of different preservation approaches we must consider more than simply the technical verisimilitude. This article proposes a methodology for performing validation against user needs to ensure required functionality is not lost as opposed to simply comparing the bits, will provide a more accurate evaluation of the success of different approaches.
