  1. Preservation Metadata: Adapting or Adopting PREMIS for APSR: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Lee, Bronwyn; Langley, Somaya; Clifton, Gerard
    Preservation metadata requirements for repositories: a project of the Australian Partnership for Sustainable Repositories (APSR) -- APSR aims to establish a centre of excellence in sustainable digital resource management and partner universities are developing demonstrator repositories built on sustainability principles. This paper presents the work of a project commissioned by APSR to specify requirements for the collection of metadata needed for long term continuity of access to digital collections. The project was called PRESTA (PREMIS Requirements Statement) but it took a broader view than PREMIS alone. The MetaArchive of Southern Digital Culture will discuss the first two years of deliverables...

  2. Towards A Preservation Content Model for Numeric Data Collections: PREMIS and FEDORA: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Gewirtz, David; Gano, Gretchen
    This session will outline the workflow associated with migrating social science data collections into FEDORA, focusing on the implementation of PREMIS metadata as a component of the submission information package (SIP). Presenters will identify how the PREMIS data model serves to specialize the packaging of the SIP so that access aids can exploit the information package when it is transformed into an archival information package (AIP). Presenters will outline an example expression of PREMIS for social science datasets and will demonstrate how this metadata may be stored in a FEDORA repository. Data management issues including normalization will also be explored....

  3. LOCKSS - Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Reich, Victoria
    People with responsibility for scholarly assets agree that digital preservation is important. Tomorrow's readers will need today's materials; without preservation they won't exist. Librarians and publishers are asking two fundamental questions: From this moment on, who will have custody of society's electronic information? From this moment on, who will control and govern society's electronic archival assets? With LOCKSS over 150 libraries and over 80 publishers are working together to ensure no one organization has control over our intellectual heritage. By ensuring libraries can build collections and retain their role as long-term memory organizations in the electronic environment LOCKSS avoids the...

  4. Digital Preservation in the UK: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Thomas, David
    The UK scene -- David Thomas will focus on the Seamless Flow programme being undertaken at the National Archives of the UK. This is an ambitious plan to develop a fully comprehensive digital preservation service for the UK central government. It covers the selection of record for permanent preservation, their transfer to the National Archives and their storage, preservation and delivery to users. Crucially, the programme is doing work in two other spaces – the intermediate storage of digital material which has a long-term business value to government (such as files relating to radioactive waste) and resource discovery. Many of...

  6. Virtualisation of Simple Scientific Data Objects: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Rankin, Stephen; Dunckley, Matt; McIlwrath, Brian; Crothers, Steve; Giaretta, David
    Capturing OAIS defined representation information in a standardised way is critical for the preservation and future reuse of scientific data. The structure of a scientific data object needs to be defined so that a future user can map the data bits to the actual scientific data. The semantics associated with the scientific data also needs to be defined so that the data can be understood and used by a user from the appropriate designated community. This presentation will show how simple scientific digital objects (tables, images etc.) can be described and "virtualised" by using representation information in the form of...

  7. A Dynamic Solution for Electronic Records: The National Archives & Records Administration’s Electronic Records Archives: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Thibodeau, Kenneth
    After a year long design competition, in September 2005 the National Archives and Records Administration awarded to Lockheed Martin Corporation a contract valued at $308 million to develop and operate the Electronic Records Archives (ERA) system. The system will enable a comprehensive transition of NARA’s governmentwide management of the records of the U.S. Government into the realm of e-government. It will automate records management processes, such as scheduling and appraisal, transfer of records to NARA, and destruction of temporary records. These functions will be applicable to records of all types, and support NARA’s different lines of business in the National...

  9. Audio-Visual Archiving: Comparing Memory Institutions and Commercial Industries: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Fleischhauer, Carl
    This presentation will compare and contrast the audio-visual reformatting carried out in memory institutions with the production, distribution, and archiving of born digital content by record labels, television broadcasters, and motion picture producers. For sound recordings, digital practices have been established in both memory institutions and the industry, although issues regarding multi-track productions are troublesome for the industry. For video, digital approaches are widely used for reformatting by libraries and for new broadcast production, but most video masters continue to be recorded on conventional digital videotape rather than as media-independent digital file formats. For theatrical films, most memory institutions continue...

    Brygfjeld, Svein Arne
    The Norwegian Broadcast Corporation (NRK, and the National Library of Norway has for six years been working together to digitise the historical radio archive of NRK. The project aims at preservation, professional re-use, and general access. More than 50.000 hrs (170.000 programs) have now been digitised in high quality. The archive is built within the National Library of Norway, but serves as the every-day radio archive for NRK with their headquarters 1000 kms away. The archive is also now the repository where the National Library of Norway stores copies of the daily radio broadcast in Norway, enabling the archive...

  11. The nestor Catalogue of Criteria for Trusted Digital Repository Evaluation and Certification: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Dobratz, Susanne; Strathmann, Stefan; Schoger, Astrid
    The Criteria for Trusted Digital Long-Term Preservation Repositories ( urn: nbn:de:0008-2006060710 or ) have been developed by the nestor project and are now open for public comment. This criteria catalogue primarily addresses cultural heritage organizations, federal archives, libraries and museums and is designed as a guideline for the planning and setup of a digital long-term preservation repository. Secondarily, this catalogue can be an orientation guide for software developers, third party vendors or service provides from the private sector. The nestor catalogue focuses on its applicability in Germany. Still, it must be discussed internationally and should adhere to international standards.

  12. Audit & Certification of Digital Repositories: Exposing Risk & Fostering Collaboration: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Dale, Robin L.
    Over the last three years, the RLG - NARA Task for on Digital Repository certification has worked to develop a checklist which would allow objective evaluation of digital repositories and archives. The checklist was based upon international standards and community best practices for digital preservation as well as influences from information technology and information security standards. The goal was to develop metrics to evaluate three aspects influencing repository trustworthiness: the characteristics of the archiving organization that affect performance, accountability, and business continuity; technologies and technical infrastructure employed by the repository; and finally the processes and procedures utilized by the repository....

  13. Fedora: Complex Objects, Information Networks, and the Challenges of Digital Preservation: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Payette, Sandy
    We are at a point where the scope, definition, and uses of digital libraries and institutional repositories are changing along with the process of creating and disseminating scholarly and scientific information. It is not enough to just store documents, datasets, images, and other resources in repositories where they can be searched and accessed. The networked landscape in which we live inspires more and calls upon us to develop information architectures that promote (1) the creation of complex digital objects that consist of both local and remote content, (2) the ability to interconnect digital objects that reside in distributed repositories, (3)...

  14. Repository Institutionalization: What makes it worth becoming infrastructure?: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Galloway, Patricia
    Since the advent of inexpensive or open-source institutional repository software, libraries and other institutions have attempted to wrestle with delivering services that could justify supporting the repository through chargebacks of some kind; yet a major problem has been persuading people to fill the repositories with content of adequate value to prospective user communities. Since 2003 we have been running DSpace repository software in the School of Information, University of Texas at Austin, at first simply as a testbed for student work but since spring of 2005 as an institutional archival repository. In the course of this experience, following the “seed-evolve-reseed”...

  15. Preservation Pressure Points: Evaluating Diverse Evidence for Risk Management: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Ross, Seamus; McHugh, Andrew
    Establishing a comprehensive understanding of the effectiveness and trustworthiness of a digital repository requires a broad range of evidence. Preservation can be considered as a complex spatial and chronological network of challenges, and associated risks. For example the organisational, financial, technological and operational contexts within which a repository resides and the extent to which it is capable of managing them must be ascertained if an audit is to be able to assert the likelihood of the institution's success. Significant effort must be directed towards the definition of methodologies for identifying appropriate classes of evidence, to their evaluation, and to the...

  16. Portico: An Electronic Archiving Service: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Fenton, Eileen
    The work of the academy – research and teaching – is not possible without reliable access to the accumulated scholarship of the past. One component of this scholarly record, academic journals, is increasingly electronic – and fragile – and its future accessibility is a growing concern. The recent statement "Urgent Action Needed to Preserve Scholarly Electronic Journals" endorsed by leading libraries and organizations such as ARL, ALCTS and others underscores the urgency of this community need. But the scale and complexity of the technology infrastructure, specialized expertise and quality control processes necessary to preserve electronic resources exceeds that which can...

  17. Preservation of Federal Digital Publications: GPO, Federal Depository Libraries, and Other Federal Agencies: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Haun-Mohamed, Robin; Baldwin, Gil
    The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) is committed to ensuring permanent public access and preservation of U.S. Federal publications. Historically, preservation of the tangible materials has been handled in collaboration with the individual libraries participating in the Federal Depository Library Program. Advances in information dissemination and the need to preserve digital content has necessitated changes in processes associated with GPO's production and distribution of Federal publications. Working with U.S. Government agencies, depository libraries and other interested parties, GPO is moving to implement a life-cycle approach to publishing of Federal publications to ensure not only access, but preservation of the objects...

  18. Digital Archive Partnership: National Library of New Zealand, Sun Microsystems, Endeavor Information Systems: Presentation - iPRES 2006 - Ithaca

    Tamminga, Tim
    For almost two years, the National Library of New Zealand (NLNZ), Endeavor Information Systems and Sun Microsystems have been working together to design and implement a comprehensive digital preservation platform for New Zealand's National Digital Heritage Archive. NLNZ has developed the requirements for the platform and with Endeavor is completing the specifications. From that, Endeavor is building a components-based application platform (called Kronos) and Sun is developing the overall reference architecture. A goal for all three organizations is to create a solution that is generic and applicable for any library with large and varied types of digital content. An independent...
